North Rhine-Westphalia: Wüst wants to take action against loneliness

Düsseldorf (dpa / lnw) - North Rhine-Westphalia Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) concluded his government statement in the state parliament on Wednesday with the topic of loneliness. "An affluent society that accepts loneliness robs itself of its true wealth," emphasized Wüst.

Loneliness has "many faces," says Wüst. Single parents "who fall tired on the sofa in the evening and nobody is there to talk about the day." Widowed people, refugees. "Many children, adolescents and younger people also feel lonely. Not just since Corona," said Wüst. The country will take action against loneliness and draw on the findings of the commission of inquiry on loneliness.

Among other things, according to Wüst, places should be strengthened where people can meet art and culture in rural areas. Also sports and volunteering.
