    Discovering the border by boating on the Rhine – 100 guests


The Dutch/German border region is an area of paramount significance. The importance of knowing and learning from one another’s language cannot be promoted enough. In this area, (young) people frequently cross the border for their daily errands. However, students (primary school, secondary school, or university) account for a major proportion.

On this day, students and teachers entered into dialogues in order to learn from one another. The event was organised and boosted by Nuffic, the Dutch organisation for internationalisation in education. Nuffic provided the teachers with guidelines, methods, and other practical tools.

We thought: what better way to show this border than by taking a boat trip along the River Rhine, from Tolkamer to Emmerich? We moored in both villages. In Emmerich, we had organised field trips, exchanges, and a city walking tour for this event. In addition to providing inspiration, the goal was also to activate, network, and exchange knowledge during the conference.

Amplify took care of all the logistics and the organisation of the event. In addition, we arranged for a photographer and created a beautiful event video for the client to share via its own communication channels.
