Bridging Culture and development between Somaliland and The Netherlands: Summing up the Yearly Cultural Activities
11 December 2010 – 14:00
Utrecht, The Netherlands
Ilays, Nomad, REDSEA-Online.com and Kayd are delighted to invite you to a cultural event “Bridging Culture and Development between Somaliland and the Netherlands and Summing up the Yearly Cultural Activities”. This conference will bring together general public, Diaspora community organisations and Dutch organizations involved in cultural and development issues in Somaliland.
Aims and objectives of the conference
Our aim is to educate and empower members of the Somaliland community in the Netherlands and elsewhere, about the developments in Somaliland and the needs of local people. We hope to present Somaliland communities in a more favourable light than many outsiders currently perceive of them. Our aim is to achieve this by highlighting the richness of Somali culture, as well as debating the importance of nation-building and a sense of citizenship in Somaliland while fostering a commitment to social responsibility as a community, responding to the need to inspire the civic participation of young people.
