This project is closing... but... it will continue as abetterplace.io!
This idea is in progress, you can follow it here!
Visit old people's homes on sunday with as many people as you can ( or inspire them to do so like a pay it forward train) and offer to take them outside so they too can enjoy the onset of spring. An idea from Kim wever

Yes! You have no idea how much happiness you would be spreading, really!! Choose a sunny day and just have a coffee somewhere, it would make their day for sure. Don't forget to contact the home in advance to know what would be good timing. If you like to do it in Arnhem, I know just the place btw ;) Walking distance from central station
My mother actually works at a retirement home in Moordrecht (near Gouda), witch houses a lot of demented elderly. Especially on sunday , and especially for those people who do not get many or sometimes no visitors at all, this would really make their day!
And try to open their mind, take away some fears, so they reconsider their vote on a xenophobe political party
What they also like very much is children visiting :) And they do love to dance! If you can organize that you have a dance in their living room, just some old fashion stuff, they will remember for sure, even the ones with dementia! And if they do not remember, they will just smile the rest of the day, for no apparent reason ;)
Nice idea Verena, btw, you knew a place in Arnhem where they would appreciate this kind of initiative? Maybe I'll contact you next week somewhere then... Don't know yet of course, how/where to do this, but it's good to check some options.
