Happy through merits – Glücklich durch Verdienste

Felix Meritis

I have been in a working meeting at the Felix Meritis Foundation, one of the partners of the A Soul for Europe initiative, with whom I’ve collaborated in the past. The foundation has a beautiful building at the Kaizersgracht with wonderful views. If you ever are in Amsterdam, you should definitely visit this place. They organise a lot of interesting events, seminars and conferences regarding culture, citizenship and politics. The name is latin for “happy through merits”. Ohhh, and I am approaching my final check on my to do list. I am so felix… I hereby call dips on the name!!

Ich hatte heute ein Arbeitstreffen in der Felix Meritis Stiftung, einer der Partner der A Soul for Europe Initiative, mit der ich in der Vergangenheit schon zusammen gearbeitet habe. Die Stiftung ist in einem wunderschönem Gebäude an der Kaizersgracht. Da dieses höher als die restlichen Häuser ist, hat man einen herrlichen Ausblick auf die Stadt. Wenn Ihr in Amsterdam sein solltet, rate ich Euch unbedingt der Stiftung einen Besuch abzustatten. Hier finden laufend Aktivitäten, Konferenzen und Seminare zu kulturellen, politischen und sozialen Themen statt. Der Name Felix Meritis ist Lateinisch für “glücklich durch Verdienste”. Und ich komme langsam aber sicher voran mit meiner To-do Liste. Ich bin so felix. Und hiermit “reserviere” ich mir den Namen.
