A foundation called “HeenenWeer” has meanwhile been driving with green electric Canta cars through the PIJP and River quarter for 5 years. In those 5 years we have driven 30.000 rides with local residents who are not or less mobile. In this way they can be part of their own residential area.
Together with all local residents and inhabitants of Amsterdam we would like to celebrate our fifth anniversary. Discover how beautiful and interesting the Amsterdam residential areas are by walking through them. There are 4 themes: playgrounds, stumbling stones, statues and religious buildings.
We have taken pictures of each theme. Take a selfie of your chosen theme during your walk and show it on Saturday May 14 between 1 and 3 pm in the community centre Henrick de Keijser/Henrick de Keijserplein 45 and you will receive a nice gift.
Each walk costs €5,- and can be paid through NL54ABNA0847748936 stating the name of your walk. Besides we will ask you to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we are able to send you a mail with a link and password for your walk.
You can take one walk, but also all 4 of them! And you can do the walks all summer, since the closing date of the links is September 1.
Walk 1: Playgrounds
Take a walk with your children/grandchildren through the area and discover the many possibilities to play.
Walk 2: Stumbling Stones
There are over a hundred stumbling stones to be found in the area. Look attentively down and be absorbed in the persons who lived here or were deported from here.
Walk 3: Statues
The PIJP area and the River quarter contain a lot of art. There are statues of persons who have been important for the structure of the area, but also of persons who have lived there and created art. Be surprised and try to find all of them.
Walk 4: Religious buildingsThere are various churches, mosques and synagoges in this area. Not only are they often beautiful edifices but also places of peace and contemplation.
