Gezond010 brings together initiatives that contribute to a healthier Rotterdam. In addition, they inspire with success stories from the city, encourage organizations to follow these good examples and stimulate collaborations. Rotterdam is a city with healthy ambitions, to which Gezond010 contributes.
The Gezond010 network consists of dozens of entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals and social organizations. To make maximum use of the power of the network, Gezond010 connects these partners as much as possible. They do this in so-called satellites. These are ‘networks within the network’, in which partners find each other within specific themes and shared tasks.
Video series with Patrick van Luijk
Gezond010 will introduce these satellites to you in the coming period. They do this in a series of videos, in which Ambassador Patrick van Luijk visits one or more initiatives from the satellite in question. In addition to being an ambassador for Gezond010, Patrick van Luijk is co-founder of the vitality company BioCheck. Through vitality and recovery programs, BioCheck focuses on chronic fatigue, burnout and stress complaints. BioCheck thus focuses on more than 30% of the causes of long-term absenteeism due to illness.
Gezond010 kicks off with the Green and Healthy satellite. Within the Green and Healthy satellite, Gezond010 partners work together to promote the importance and functions of greenery. Both in the outdoor space and within the residential, living, school and working environment. Healthy eating, sustainability and projects for people at a distance from the labor market are also themes that fit within this satellite. Patrick went to visit the Food garden and spoke with project coordinator Tineke van den Burg and garden coordinator Meriam Beek. He learned the value of a green place and discovered that he has green fingers. Watch the video below.
Gezond010 will make even more videos in the coming period, so keep an eye on the channels. Want to know more about the Green and Healthy satellite or the other satellites? On this web page you will find more information.
