DEMOCRACY ALIVE will take place on Groeneplaats, in the centre of Den Burg.
We have specifically chosen this location to distance ourselves from the usual Brussels bubble and bring people together in a non-traditional setting. Easy to reach, the island has all the elements needed for a successful event including substantial local experience with large events, a wide range of accommodation options, and a dedicated local community that is excited to welcome us all to their home.
Texel also offers extensive beaches, varied nature areas, picturesque villages, great restaurants and many cafes.
For more information on Texel, travel, accommodation, restaurants and lots more, just visit their website!
