Leiden students make impact together and learn with the city

With a (touring) exhibition - Presenting with the City 'on tour' - the programme Learning with the City shows the social impact that students (from university, college and mbo) realised in the city last semester. Themes covered include: children's outdoor play behaviour, the 450th anniversary of Leidens Ontzet, social cohesion, needs of young informal carers, financial self-sufficiency and mental well-being among young people.

Themes that are also recognisable and relevant in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
Therefore, from 20 February onwards, the exhibition Presenting with the City is on display in the hall of the faculty and everyone can see for themselves which projects have been carried out. Via QR codes on the different cubes, you can watch videos of the projects, or other ways that make results visible.

On Monday 26 February at 16.00, we will organise an 'Opening' of the exhibition, somewhat later due to the spring break the week before.

At the opening, more will be told about Learning with the City, the commitment to it from FSW and students will talk about their experiences. We will also show how Learning with the City works together with the Leiden Healthy Society Center, another important cooperation programme of the faculty. You are most welcome!

Learning with the City

Loneliness, poverty, social safety, equal opportunities, (mental) vitality and sustainability. These are themes being worked on throughout the Netherlands. On the initiative of the municipality of Leiden, Hogeschool Leiden, University of Leiden and mboRijnland, students in the education and research programme Learning with the City are working on various social issues that are relevant in Leiden. On location in the neighbourhoods, in cooperation with organisations and in consultation with residents. In this way, students apply their knowledge to tackle urgent challenges and gain important practical experience. Students always do this as part of their studies, for instance as part of an internship, graduation project, minor or subject. Interdisciplinary and with each other, i.e. MBO, HBO and WO students together. Learning with the City also has a location in Leiden North, in Het Gebouw at Arubapad 2 in Leiden. From there, we organise education and research in several districts in the city.
