Visitor from Echt-Susteren

Elvera Weusten, communications adviser to Echt-Susteren Council, Netherlands, meets Mayor of Mold, Anthony Parry.

A new Cittaslow town in the Netherlands, which is interested in finding out more about Cittaslow towns in the UK, sent Elvera Weusten to Mold and Llangollen on a fact finding visit. Cittaslow in Mold and Llangollen tends to be run by volunteers rather than local authorities – which is unusual in other countries.

Elvera looked at how the Cittaslow goals around sustainability are being embedded in the Mold Town Plan. She met representatives from a number of organisations including visiting Llys Jasmine to find out about Dementia Friendly Communities.
