A new partnership and collaboration between WHC – World Horti Center and PUM Netherlands experts has been officially signed.
The goal of this collaboration is to reinforce both organizations. Through sharing knowledge and using each other’s networks, experts from PUM’s side are prone to make a bigger impact in certain countries where is needed. At the same time, the sector of Dutch horticultural gains business chances in emerging markets and developing countries.
Furthermore, this collaboration offers even more opportunities, one of them being the fact that it helps corporate volunteering for firms of the Dutch horticultural sector which allows them to give material to CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility, as well as some talent development.
After that, the workers will get deployed as a PUM expert but only for a certain period of time. Because of the pandemic and with traveling not being available right now, this increases the opportunities for young volunteers who want to share their advice and knowledge through digital means and remote coaching.
Both the director of PUM Andy Wehkamp and the interim director of WHC Hans Kleijwegt have confirmed the collaboration in the world map, and they also aim at reinforcing network and global knowledge of both organizations. The collaboration will be allowed more substance and it will also be introduced to the WHC participants in September.
