The VeerStichting is a Dutch non-profit organisation that was established in 1978 by students of Leiden University. The purpose of the organisation is to advance the exchange of ideas between excelling students and high-level professionals, such as policy-makers, businessmen, scholars, politicians and people from the creative sector. Its student board annually organises a two-day symposium where 250 outstanding  university students and 250 influential thinkers from mostly The Netherlands and Flanders are invited to discuss a topic  that affects, society as a whole, as well as organisations and the individual. Over the years, the symposium has gained a prestigious reputation, with speakers such as F.W. de Klerk, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Jimmy Nelson, The Rt. Hon. David Trimble and Mario Monti.. During these two days, the participants get inspired by (international) speakers, interactive performances, workshops and other surprising activities. The result is the unique encounter between two different generations from where new, remarkable ideas arise.
