Initiative ‘Groen is Gaon’
The 'Groen is Gaon' initiative was created during a meeting at Achterhoekverbindt.nl, an initiative of regional companies. It is part of ten action points to get back on track with each other during the corona crisis. This initiative was created to establish safety and trust in interaction with each other. With recognizable pictograms and posters they carefully put the red traffic light back on green, within the framework of the RIVM (Dutch State Institute for Public Health). They want to give everyone something to hold on to, making it easier to get used to the new normal and to rebuild that trust. Jan Kaak of 8RHK Ambassadeurs says: "We literally and figuratively have to cross a threshold to find each other again. So it is important that we start up one by one in the region and regain trust together. If we do this together, smartly and gradually, there will be room for everyone to find their way back into the new normal". Source: 8rhk Ambassadeurs
