After joining the (ENFiD) Conference in Essen, Germany last September 30-October 1, 2017, Marizel Rojas of Austria formally established ENFID Austria and Youth European Network of Filipino Diaspora (YENFid) on October 15, 2017. Ms. Marison Rodriguez ENFiD Vice Chair, witnessed the Induction of the new officers of ENFiD –Austria.
Rojas reported that the European Conference in Germany was a significant event, wherein the participants had the chance to discuss the diaspora and their contributions to both homeland and host countries as well as the common concerns of various communities in Europe.
The conference had Filipino experts on migration and development who spoke about how Euro-Filipinos can contribute to sustainable development in the home country as well as how they can profile their contributions to their host countries to create what organizers called “a balance of information about the significant roles of the diaspora in global economy covering both their representations in the host countries and the countries of origin.”
The conference also tacked the issues of Euro-Pinoy senior citizens and of integration, while the newly launched sports committee was tasked to organize inter-country sports festivals to bring together Euro-Pinoy communities.
Conference participants also asked ENFiD to take the lead in mapping Filipino artists in visual and performing arts to promote and showcase Filipino art and culture in Europe.
Founded in Rome in 2012, ENFiD is a non-profit organization which is non-political, nonpartisan, non-sectarian. It counts Filipino community leaders in Austria, Belgium, United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, France, Italy, Czech Republic, Romania, Denmark, Malta, Ireland and Israel.
