The city of The Hague has been hosting between 2nd-4th of October the Age-Friendly Cities Conference on innovation, health and active ageing. There was a workshop on the 3rd of October about ‘diversity’. A lot of ENIEC members attended the workshop and where involved.
ENIEC member Frédéric Lauscher from Germany gave a lovely presentation. “Diversity has a lot different sides. You have to look behind the curtains”, said Frédéric. He advises professionals to look what diversity means to people. “Make a strategic plan and use humor”. ENIEC member Eva Rönkkö from Finland showed us the importance of exercising together. She organizes successful multicultural projects where people of all nationalities can easily participate. “They have fun together, they have a lot of social contact and they are active”. Lola Casal-Sanchez, our chairman of ENIEC, gave an enthusiastic presentation about ENIEC and she convinced some people to become a member. Well done! The workshop was coordinated by Jan Booij, co-founder and memberr of ENIEC.
