 Klaas-Wybo and Sandy have worked together for the past 5 years on initiatives regarding education, peace and tourism.

Klaas-Wybo’s personal commitment to the universities newly formed centers on peace and tourism and the new media and entertainment department has opened up new opportunities for the students and the professors.

Stenden attracts meetings to their on-site hotel and meeting facilities as part of the program they offer to students who come from all over the world to this renowned hospitality university tucked in a quaint Dutch village called Leeuwarden.. At the heart of these forums and conferences are the students who plan and coordinate the meetings as a part of the ‘problem-based learning’ technique. The upscale hotel and meeting facilities are under one roof and with the university allowing visitors a chance to work directly with the students and their professors. From a personal point of view, it is a delightful and rewarding experience!
