Aside from self-management, it’s also possible to contribute by organizing things yourself which will contribute to social cohesion and community building.

Lots of possibilities

Almost anything is possible! All kinds of activities can be organized; sports, cooking, games, movies or music. This can be done one-off, but it is also possible to form a committee or a club so the activities take place more frequently. It is all up to the tenants and their wishes! The self-management team can offer support.

Let us know your ideas!

Are you, or will you be a tenant and have an idea? No matter if it’s something big or small, let us know what you would like to do!

Would you like to know which activities will take place at Startblok? Take a look at ‘What’s new/Activities’. We will regularly update this page and add new events!

Coordination of activities at Startblok

In order to facilitate different ideas, activities and events a foundation was set up by a couple of volunteers. The board members coordinate all activities and project at Startblok.

In startblok we live as a young big family, where culture, mentality, education and backgroung is diverse. I joined Stichting Startblok Actief! because I want to play my part in the social cohesion of this big family, to be a bridge between cultures and to learn from everyone around me. My goal is to, together with my team, bring everyone as close as possible to each other.

Two years ago, when I first heard about Startblok Riekerhaven, I was immediately hooked on the idea. The concept of living together, helping each other and taking part in a community you have build up yourself still makes me excited and proud. I started as thechairman of the Startblok Actief! foundation and now I started as community developer in the Startblok Team. Together with the residents and everyone involved we are building the community of Startblok Riekerhaven. If you have an idea or a new initiative, you can contact me at any time!

Here you can see a picture of the previous Startblok Actief! Team that organized many fun activities.

“The most important aspect of Startblok is that youngsters with different histories, knowledge and talents are brought together with the same goal: creating a good place to live and where you can personally grow.”
