"Refugees are coming to Maastricht ... we want to make them feel welcome."
In "Friend Crisis" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht, Vol 27, progressive chaplain Petra Kai Kormendy explains that there is no such thing as a "refugee crisis" but rather a crisis of friendship.

BY AURELIA STR

We can hardly imagine how much struggle it must be to leave one's own country and everything that is close to one's heart behind. But it doesn’t take much for us to open our arms and make someone feel welcome, says Aurelia Streit.
She believes that we can change the current narrative towards refugees in Europe by establishing local platforms for intercultural exchange.

Cultural and Social Sustainability
When we hear about sustainability, we often think of energy, waste, transport, themes focused on economy and environment, .
We are living in a world with more and more migration. A world becoming more interconnected and global. Does anyone really desire living in a place with walled off communities? We need to be paying more attention to creating communities that are culturally and socially sustainable. Can we make our diversity a community resource that builds strength and resilience, rather than fear?
