Stichting Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) – Mission accomplished
Today's opening gong ceremony marks the successful closing chapter of Stichting Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI).
Nine years ago, CYFI's mission was to grow a global movement on the topic of financial inclusion and financial education for children and youth. Today, it has seen the Movement reach a point where it is self-sustaining and no longer needs a coordinator. As such, CYFI’s last milestone has been fulfilled and we will be proudly shutting its doors on December 31, 2019.
It is a true achievement and source of fulfillment for CYFI to be where every NGO wants to be: at a point where what it has built can go on without it.

Arcadis – Improving PFAS knowledge with Australian technology
Arcadis signed a Heads of Agreement with EVOCRA, enabling an exclusive commercial negotiating period within which the parties will finalize a license agreement for sole rights to the EVOCRA technology for PFAS solutions. This technology, which has already been proven at commercial scale on projects in Australia, will be a welcome addition to Arcadis’ existing suite of PFAS solutions, allowing Arcadis to continue to offer a differentiated solution for clients globally.
To celebrate that Arcadis environment director Marc Raessen will open the stock exchange.
PFAS, or per- and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances, were incorporated in commercial, industrial and consumer products, including textile coatings, stain repellents, electronics and mist suppressants. PFAS were also components of firefighting foams known as Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF). In recent years, under increasing scientific and regulatory scrutiny and community awareness, more is being understood about PFAS toxicity, environmental persistence, aquifer mobility and the potential for this emerging contaminant to bioaccumulate in natural environments and enter the food chain.
Arcadis is at the forefront of a global effort to remove PFAS from impacted sites and environments, with over 75 projects in their portfolio, representing over 300 individual sites in 12 countries. This deal will continue Arcadis’ push to achieve greater market share within the PFAS space and provide their clients with a unique and innovative solution that can be used on its own and/or in conjunction with other technologies to remove PFAS from impacted sources. In the beginning of 2020 Arcadis will start tests in The Netherlands tests with the EVOCRA technology.Arcadis 04/12/2019 - 9:17AM CETAmsterdam

Perry van der Weyden, who sounds the gong today, is CIO of Rijkswaterstaat and recently proclaimed the winner of the CIO of the Year Award 2019. He can call himself the best "chief information officer" in the Netherlands. Van der Weyden owes the prize to the way in which he manages to achieve results within the government, a complex environment with many stakeholders.
Winning the CIO of the Year Award 2019 is the reason for opening the Amsterdam stock exchange. Rob Beijleveld, CEO of ICT Media and initiator of the CIO of the Year Award, finds Van der Weyden a shining example in the government world. "You can see that he manages to get digital initiatives off the ground in an unconventional way and subsequently knows how to find support for them." The other jury members were also very enthusiastic about the winner.
At Rijkswaterstaat the share of the IT function in the primary process is growing. Digitization is making its entrance into the monitoring of traffic flows, and the management and maintenance of roads, shipping lanes and other objects.

By striking the gong, commissioner Hannelise Tvedt, Territorial Commander of The Salvation Army in The Netherlands, opens trading at the stock exchange in Amsterdam. This marks the start of the national collection week of The Salvation Army.
From 25 till 30 November, volunteers of The Salvation Army will go door to door with their collection boxes. The proceeds of this annual collection go to local activities to combat social exclusion and loneliness. More and more people stand alone these days and a lot of them cannot manage on their own. The Salvation Army wants to offer an open door and inclusive fellowship to these people, including providing meal projects, debt counselling, second hand clothing shops and a soup bus.
The Salvation Army does not receive any public subsidies for these activities, they are fully funded by private donations. That is why The Salvation Army organizes a national collection week each year.

About Exchange Drumming
The annual Exchange Drumming (“Beurstrommelen”) is a centuries’ old tradition at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. We commemorate the brave action of an Amsterdam orphan boy, who during the Eighty Years’ War foiled an attempt by the Spanish to blow up the Exchange Building. As a thank you gesture, orphans were allowed to bang their drums in the building for a day.
This tradition is continued by Amsterdam schoolchildren to this day.
