Coffee & the Global Goals
On Saturday 25 September 2021 Delft officially became a Global Goals Municipality, exactly 6 years after the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) came into force. Alderman Brandligt gave the go-ahead by hoisting a Global Goals flag. That is why all kinds of activities around Global Goals and sustainability are organized in the TU Delft Botanic Garden and De Papaver in the coming months. In October and November, various activities for adults and children are organized around Coffee & the Global Goals. Keep an eye on the websites and

Coffee & the Global Goals - exhibition
The exhibition Coffee & the Global Goals can be visited in the education room of the Botanical Garden until 31 November. It not only focuses on the coffee plants, which you can view directly in the greenhouses, but also on the entire coffee chain: from the coffee farmer, cooperatives, transporters, wholesalers, roasters to the points of sale. And special attention is given to how Fair Trade organizations help farmers to get a fairer price for their coffee.

Coffee & the Global Goals afternoons
The last two Sundays of October you can come and see the exhibition in the garden, get more information, walk a special coffee route/quest, make a coffee soap and taste coffee from different countries.
