We realize that still for many individuals the travel and participation fee can be a big investment. We invite you to be creative with it, there are all kind of cheap ways to travel, if you spend some time to look for it or ask someone to support you in it. Sharing with people that you are looking for cheap way of travelling to Holland is mostly very effective. Also asking and sharing about the participant fee is a very effective way of getting support.
