It features talks by Geert Mak and Russell Shorto and a discussion including Sam Roberts (New York Times reporter), Beth Fertig (WNYC radio), Ruth Oldenziel (American specialist at Eindhoven University), Frans Timmermans (State Secretary for Foreign Affairs) and others. Moderator: Twan Huys.

NOTE; AFTER THE SUCCESSFUL 2009 CELEBRATION HENRY HUDSON 400 AMSTERDAM RENAMED ITSELF INTO HENRY HUDSON 500.
HENRY HUDSON 400 NY HAS BEEN DISSOLVED. 

Established in 2006 in Amsterdam and in New York, the Henry Hudson 400 Foundation was organized to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson. Besides celebrating the historic event, the Foundation also wants to explore future ties between these two great cities which are linked by their shared belief in the value of free, diverse, outward-reaching societies.
