De Ontmoeting, the community space

Connect with the communities advocating for lung health worldwide

De Ontmoeting meaning ‘meeting’ in Dutch, is a vibrant area where community activists, scientists, students, civil society and others come together to network, exchange ideas, discuss solutions and inspire action towards our common goals of ending tuberculosis (TB), reducing tobacco use and improving lung health globally.

Open to the public free of charge, this space will host discussions, presentations, movies and cultural activities. Highlights from this year’s programme include:

De Ontmoeting is organised in conjuction with the 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health, which will bring together more than 3,000 participants from all over the world to the World Forum, The Hague, for four days of exchange on the latest on science, research and developments in global lung health.
