    Meetup #20: Ithaka - the academy for meaningful work
    The Present builds partnerships with initiatives, projects and NGOs that make a positive contribution to the lives of refugees. We connect them to our network of entrepreneurs who can help with certain issues that need to be solved for an even more positive impact. As part of such a partnership, The Present organises meet-ups, where initiatives that want to improve the lives of refugees are given a stage. Here they can discuss the biggest issues live with an enterprising audience where we create a form of 'crowd consulting'. Our second meet-up in Utrecht, will be happening on December 15th. If the COVID measurements allow us, we will host the meet-up at Kanaal30. If not, we will host the event online. At the meet-up we will hear the inspiring story of 'Ithaka' ( Ithaka helps people who have trouble with entering the labour market, to find a meaningful job. Ithaka believes that everyone deserves a meaningful place in society. Come and hear their inspiring story and help them out with their bottleneck! Tickets are €5, to cover the costs of the event. If the event turns out to be online, we will donate the money to our #wenotme campaign (, which currently supports Home For All; a Greek couple who cook meals for refugees on Lesvos.
