On Thursday March 24, a symposium named ‘Aan de slag met nieuwe Amsterdammers’ was organized. Amsterdam based NGOs as housing corporatives, welfare institutions and schools discussed ideas on how to contribute to the participation (i.e. work and volunteering work) of refugees in Amsterdam. 110 people joined the meeting.

What are the needs of refugees and what have those institutions to offer? What are the official regulations? We are looking for some refugees to tell their story and to think with us how we can get things done.

Thanks to all volunteer experts, Vluchtelingenwerk, Vrijwilligers Centrale Amsterdam, NGO’s, housing corporations, welfare institutions, schools and Kennis Netwerk Amsterdam who joined forces!
