Topics of the day

From now on we will move to the second phase of the program. Fellows will be in action, by writing reports and visiting inspiring grassroots projects.

Today (ex) Journalist Tino Wallaart will jump-start the report groups with his customized tips. Amnesty’s campaigner Jan Willem Dol will then explain the ins and outs of campaigning, after which the fellows will work on hypothetical campaigns themselves.

After lunch the fellows will visit a unique project in which the police cooperates intensely with community center The Kandelaar around the issue of the safety of irregular migrants in neighborhood De Bijlmer.
