On Saturday, April 1 2023, the Young Atlantic Association will organize it’s annual NATO Night under a new name – Atlantic Assembly. This year’s Assembly will center itself around the resolve in trans-Atlantic cooperation of the past year.
Jeff Amrish Ritoe, Director Corporate Business Development at WMC Energy and a Strategic Advisor at the Hague Centre for Strategic Studies (HCSS), will speak on the importance of critical minerals in geopolitics. Do you know which minerals are in your smartphone and where they come from? In this in-depth interview, Ritoe will discuss how to make sure that the minerals essential to our economies remain readily available, and explore what the geopolitical implications of these minerals are.
Through an interactive program, the Young Atlantic Association aims to go beyond the military domain to discuss new security threats, such as climate-change, right-wing extremism and the western support for Ukraine, in a series of sessions, each containing one panel, one workshop, and an interview.
The event will feature a welcome from the chairwoman of the association, Boukje van den Eijnden, and an opening keynote speech by the Netherlands Chief of Defence Onno Eichelsheim.
