If you are interested to join the drink, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 10 February 2020.
We will confirm your attendance by e-mail.
Our daily stress and struggle tend to focus us on the future all the time. Rarely do we take a moment to reflect upon our origin. Therefore, we thought it would be kind of fun to just come together on Darwin’s birthday for a drink, an ‘aperitif’ and an explanatory toast.
If you feel in anyway connected to Darwin or his ideas, or you just want to look back in the past while thinking about the future, join us at the Zoological Institute from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, Wednesday 12-2-2020, 19h.
Don’t hesitate to forward this invitation to people who you know might be interested to join the drink.
The audience will be an interesting mix of students, professors and people from the industry with a heart for science and Darwin. Bring a business card if available to be put in an empty business card jacket that we will provide.
