Stadsgoud is an initiative of the Elisabeth Strouven Fund that will take place for the fourth time this year. Citizens and organizations from Maastricht can come up with interesting and innovative ideas on the basis of a theme. An independent jury will judge these idea’s.
All inhabitants of Maastricht are challenged to think hard about this question: how do you ensure that all residents are involved in the neighborhood?
These are initiatives by and for local residents, where helping your fellow man is central. These initiatives may concern, for example, loneliness, poverty, volunteering or more coherence in the neighborhood.
From the 7th of January to the 7th of March 2019, your ideas can be submitted on www.stadsgoud.nl. The best ideas and finalists will be selected.
An independent jury will decide who the winner will be on Sunday April 14th. As in previous editions, the Elisabeth Strouven Fund will make € 100,000 available to the winner.
The song ‘We zijn toch op de wereld om mekaar te helpen, nietwaar?’ From the comedy “het Schaep met de 5 poten” has been chosen as the song for this edition. The original series dates from 1969 and takes place in one of the brown café location. In 2006 a sequel to the series was made and in 2019 there will even be a musical. Both the song and the café will be part of the Stadsgoud theme.
