Gimme the night! Night Mayor Summit

Night is the new day: Roles and challenges of the Night Mayors and the potentials of the night economy.

This summit brings together important night economy actors involved in promoting, advocating for, and regulating all aspects of ‘the night’. Our invited panelists will discuss the roles and challenges of the night mayor and other representatives of the night economy who are advocating for the economic and cultural value of the night. We will also be delving into the night economy in a European context, presenting the ‘Manifesto for European Nights’, and looking into different ways of representing the night both within, and outside of, traditional government structures.

The current night mayor of Den Haag, Sjoerd van Schuylenburch, will be hosting the evening and has invited other night mayors, representatives, and policymakers to join us in the audience and extend our conversations on the potentialities of the night.

The session is moderated by Ella Overkleeft, co-founder of the Night-Mayor foundation in Amsterdam, and is presented in collaboration with our We are Europe partner, European Lab.
