The website also includes the photo gallery – a wonderful album that really captures the flavour of the event.

Solidarios has now also analysed the delegates’ feedback forms. We’re delighted to see that participants enjoyed the congress so much that most are now planning to attend the Brussels congress in 2019!

Madrid Congress a huge success!

Over 140 people from 11 countries – from Austria to Australia – enjoyed a fantastic two-day congress in Madrid on 25 and 26 May, courtesy of Solidarios. This was our biggest congress to date. Delegates enjoyed a rich programme of presentations, workshops and time for all-important networking at the flamboyant Palacio Cibeles, Madrid’s impressive city hall.

We will post up  more information about the congress shortly, together with the presentations as we get them, meanwhile you might enjoy a flavour of this vibrant event from the album at https://flic.kr/s/aHskWbbtuK

And in 2019 …

At the congress our Spanish hosts passed the giant globe to our colleagues in Belgium, 1 Toit 2 Ages, who will host the Sixth World Congress in Brussels on 21 and 22 March 2019! Save the date!

 

Homesharing on the BBC

Homesharing has recently had some brilliant coverage on the BBC. A 20-minute radio programme on the BBC’s World Service did a very informative piece on the homeshare concept. It featured Typhaine de Penfentenyo of ensemble2générations and some of her successful matches as well as our Director, Elizabeth Mills. You can listen here: www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04nmxv8#play

The story was then picked up in the BBC online magazine: One solution to two big social problems. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38399246

The BBC’s World Service reached a global audience of 348 million people in 2016 – let’s hope many of them were tuned in!
