Join us in Leiden, Netherlands?  

When? 15 October 2022 

ADHD Europe in partnership with our member organisation Impuls & Wortblind based in Netherlands have been preparing activities since 2021 to celebrate ‘the Power of ADHD’ at the European City of Science 2022 in Leiden.

The programme during the event in Leiden is sure to showcase creativity, fantasy, interviews and interactive sessions with experts in the field of ADHD as ‘Science makes our minds wonder!’

Our aim will be to raise awareness by providing a further understanding of ADHD, as well as how society can participate to lesson the burden for people living with ADHD during the workshops at universities and the activities scheduled in the city. The full downloadable programme will be available soon and we are happy to announce the following scheduled talks (in person and broadcasted online!)
