The annual Week of Respect will be held for the 11th time in The Netherlands, from 7 to 13 November 2016. This year's motto is "You make the difference". As in previous years, the focus will be on schools and sports. An overview of the program in English can be found here.

The Week of Respect will be kicked off in The Hague, on 7 november 2016, by deputy prime minister Lodewijk Asscher. During the week, more than 150 guest speakers (from MP's to mayors and many other ) will discuss the topic of respect in schools in more than 70 towns in The Netherlands.
