Connecting Worlds

Helping people adapt, integrate and develop

CONNECT INTERNATIONAL organizes various events and activities every month to give international residents a sense of community, to help them better understand the Dutch culture, to find their way in their daily lives in the northern Netherlands and simply to have fun.

The language spoken during all events is English.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Some face-to-face events are being held in accordance with the governmental measures enacted to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
However, many other events will still be held online. Click on the image below to find out what these options are.

Projects and Activities

"Walking with a Stranger" - We want to leave isolation behind and open again ourselves to joyful encounters (of course respecting Corona prevention regulations). Taking this in account we created an event that allows us to do so and meet new people, making it actually playful by matching two strangers, who will go for a walk together. More about the activity: Facebook, Instagram. Sign up link.

#NLthroughoureyes - We publish stories and photos made by internationals which describe and illustrate expat's lives in The Northern Netherlands (Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe). These stories may be published in the Connect International Blog, on Facebook and Instagram pages or in The Northern Times. Please send us an email if you wish to take part in this project.

Connect Running Club members meet privately and run every Saturday morning in the Noorderplantsoen park in compliance with the current Covid-19 regulations. If you wish to become the Connect Running Club member, please send an email to events@connect-int.org with your name and WhatsApp number. The Connect Running Club coordinator in Groningen will add you the WhatsApp group.
