SIGN UP: Please sign up using this form.
ATTENDEES SHOULD: Have Zoom ready to start!
Housing is proven to be a problem in many cities around the world. In our next collaboration, we want to shift your attention to the problem of homelessness in our city. Together with the Salvation Army, the Social Inclusion Committee of ESN Utrecht will organize an interactive event for you. The event’s speaker is Ferdinand van de Velde! He is the head of Herstart; a project where homeless people find care and shelter in Utrecht and is an expert on the issue of the event.
We will talk about homelessness in Utrecht and discuss multiple dilemmas that homeless people and organizations such as the Salvation Army face. During the event, we will have an interactive part where we will form groups to find solutions to dilemmas that the Salvation Army is facing now: Firstly, we will focus on migration from Eastern European countries to the rich countries of Europe and secondly what the effect of the increasing shortage on the housing market is on our problem. These dilemmas will be introduced by showing various short videos to get the discussion started. You are invited to participate!
We want to create an open environment to discuss topics about homelessness in Utrecht. Don’t hesitate to take part in the discussion!
Due to the Coronavirus the event will be online! We will send you the link of the meeting once signed up.
Hope to see you there!
