On Thursday, September 25, more than two hundred employees from various botanical gardens in the Netherlands travelled to the National day of the Botanical Gardens in Utrecht. Together with Waag, these employees are investigating new strategic ideas for the gardens of tomorrow. What will botanical gardens mean for the generations of the future? What can they do for our future society? How can they reach new audiences or broaden existing ones? Which stories do visitors want to hear? And which format is most suitable to tell those stories?
