Puntland Network Forum organizes cultural activities, these activities support creativity and self-expression but also work as a bridge for bringing together youths coming from different cultural backgrounds. The activities are based on the premise that cultural integration can assist in realizing a holistic social integration, both in terms of equal access to cultural goods but also in regards to reinforcing social cohesion.
Building styles in the 13 colonies were influenced by techniques and styles from England, as well as traditions brought by settlers from other parts of Europe. In New England, 17th-century colonial houses were built primarily from wood, following styles found in the southeastern counties of England. Dutch Colonial structures, built primarily in the Hudson River Valley, Long Island, and northern New Jersey, reflected construction styles from Holland and Flanders and used stone and brick more extensively than buildings in New England.
