On 22 December Bridgizz and YOUnite lauched the book '180 Amsterdammers' in restaurant Meram, Amsterdam.
In 180 Amsterdammers you can read the stories of all 180 Amsterdammers that participated in this project. How did they end up in Amsterdam and what have they done to make Amsterdam their home
“With its 180 different nationalities, Amsterdam is one of the most diverse cities in the world. While no one is saying that it’s always easy to all live together, we’re managing pretty well. After all, diversity is in Amsterdam’s DNA.[...] What is then the DNA of Amsterdam? If this city were a person it would certainly have the following characteristics: curious, enterprising, stubborn, straightforward, witty, brave, rebellious and merciful. And of course, stunning. That is what is so attractive about Amsterdam.
[...] This book allows you, the reader, to look at our city through the eyes of Amsterdammers. It tells you their personal stories about love and friendship, joy and sorrow, prosperity and adversity, amazement and wonder. “For who is wise? He that learns from everyone.”
- From the preface by Mr. Eberhard van der Laan, Mayor of Amsterdam
