On the night of the 29th of March, CIC organises our first event to celebrate and create awareness for the importance of diversity, equity and inclusivity. The theme for this session is women in innovation. You’ll be able to have an authentic movie experience in the most classical cinema of Rotterdam, Kriterion! And by the way a soda and popcorn are included with every admission.
The renowned French sociologist Fabien Truong will give a lecture on the troubled French banlieues and the methods employed to resolve these issues. What can Rotterdam learn from this approach?
The evening is organized by Knowledge Lab Leefbare Wijken. The purpose of the lecture and discussion is to get to know the problems of, and approach in, French disadvantaged neighborhoods: what should we do or strive for in the Netherlands
