'It is with great sadness I report that Common Purpose in the
Netherlands has closed down. In the current climate in the
Netherlands, the open courses have struggled to cover
costs. The Netherlands team have worked very hard over
the years for Common Purpose and we are all very grateful for their
work. They can be contacted through Common Purpose centrally (email@example.com)
if you want to send any general or personal messages.
Dutch alumni of Common Purpose courses will, I hope, continue to
stay in touch with Common Purpose internationally. We hope that
when they travel to cities where Common Purpose continues to thrive
around the world, they will get in touch via www.commonpurpose360.org to
see if they can attend events.
I would like to thank the many people who have put in time and
energy to grow Common Purpose in the Netherlands over the years -
we never give up at Common Purpose and are determined to find a way
to work in the Netherlands again in the future.'
