Communities of The Hague

The Hague is a city rich in cultural diversity. To cherish the beautiful diversity of the city and the freedom we enjoy, we want to bring the people of The Hague together. As The International City of Peace and Justice, we invite you to share the freedoms we have and to help explore those that we should strive for.

Freedom Reflections

What is Freedom to you?

Be who you are
Have no fear
Live with dignity
Love who you want
Have a ‘voice’
Make friends
Form communities
Be validated
Diverse perspectives

Freedom Conundrums

Total freedom is the worst thing you could wish for
Freedom is a contradiction
Freedom is at best, a happy chaos
Without a shared logic of humanity, there is no freedom

What do you think Freedom is?
