A city with a heart

ChristenUnie Rotterdam will work for a city with a heart. So what does that mean for our priorities in the coming years?

A city without a heart?
After the bombing in 1940 Rotterdam was called ‘the city without a heart’. But we are proud of our city. At the same time, we also see that too many Rotterdammers are struggling. We see that rules sometimes seem more important than people. Citizens experience injustice and discrimination. Too many people no longer trust each other or organizations.

Care for each other
Everywhere in Rotterdam you will find people taking care of each other and the city in all kinds of ways. In the streets, neighborhoods, districts, organizations, initiatives and churches. We support these Rotterdammers and appreciate everyone who cares for the city. We are going for a city council with a heart, one that takes action against injustice and inequality.

What are we going to do in the next four years?
In the next four years, the ChristenUnie will continue to strive for a city where everyone feels seen and heard: please read below about our four goals.

  • Rebuilding trust
  • Bridging divisions
  • Care for creation
  • Creating space for religion
