iSocial hosts a delegation of social organizations from the Netherlands
A group of delegates from Dutch social organizations has visited the iSocial Foundation and its member organizations: Pere Claver Grup, Intress, FIBS, ABD, and Hàbitat3. This year marks the third consecutive year that a delegation from this country has visited us. Last May, a delegation consisting of iSocial member organizations also traveled to the Netherlands to learn about local social innovation initiatives.
On Friday, September 29th, iSocial received a delegation of representatives from social entities and businesses from the Netherlands. It was part of an exchange trip driven by the organization Coincide BV, which promotes innovation in the public sector and the Third Sector from the Netherlands.
During this trip, the 40 representatives from Dutch entities and companies visited iSocial and its member organizations: Pere Claver Grup, Intress, FIBS, ABD, and Hàbitat3, to get firsthand insights into social initiatives based in Barcelona and the surrounding areas. In the case of iSocial, we explained our work and took the opportunity to present the Nidus project, a digital toolkit designed to improve the living conditions and proper integration of homeless individuals while facilitating smoother communication with Social Services professionals. The presentation took place at the facilities of the municipal residence Cal Muns, managed by Pere Claver Grup, specializing in medium and long-term accommodation for homeless individuals.
This is the third Dutch delegation of this kind to visit Barcelona from the Netherlands in the last three years, as part of a program aimed at sharing international experiences and promoting synergy among similar organizations in the two countries. In the same vein, the first InnoTrip journey took place in May, promoted by the iSocial Foundation, and we plan to repeat it in other countries in the coming years.
