In The Hague, the international city of peace and justice, tens of thousands of people are working every day to tackle complex global challenges. It is a city that is cosmopolitan yet compact. The Hague represents a unique hub that connects startups with governments, international companies, research centers, studios, and thousands of creative entrepreneurs.
That’s what is happening, for example, in The Hague Security Delta, the largest security cluster in Europe. More than 13,000 people work there in some 400 organisations to improve cyber security around the world. You’ll see that also in the Beatrixkwartier, the second most important business district in the entire country. Easily accessible, close to the historic centre, and just a stone’s throw away from the eleven-kilometre long sandy beach.
Economic sectors such as Energy, Finance & Legal, ICT & Telecom, and Security are well-represented in The Hague. The city is also the seat of the Dutch government – a place where important decisions affecting the future of the country are taken every day. With knowledge institutions such as The Hague University of Applied Sciences and the universities of Leiden, Delft and Rotterdam, there’s a steady stream of highly educated talent to the city.
The Hague attracts more and more important international conferences, including the Nuclear Security Summit in 2014, the Global Conference on Cyber Space in 2015, exemplary part of Startup Fest Europe in 2016 and One Young World, which will be held in 2018.
Whether it’s a United Nations organization, one of the many NGOs, art schools, or start-ups: The Hague, as international city of peace and justice, is the place where you can readily expand your network, exert influence and work on social and global challenges and build solutions that work.
