Introduction into Dutch society

The Global Village is a place from which you can get to know the city of Eindhoven and its inhabitants. We understand that even for Dutch people it is hard to deal with all the regulations and bureaucracy. The newcomers, especially those who do not speak the Dutch language or who have a very small network of friends, family or colleagues, very often get into troubles. Being well informed prevents you from getting into trouble and makes you independent.

This segment of our program helps in getting to know the institutions, culture, regulations, habits, rights and obligations. During the workshops, presentations, information meetings or organized visits and tours in the city, professionals and people from the city are giving you more information and share their experiences in the fields of i.e. Dutch history, the politics, taxes and employment, health, social services, education etc.

You are welcome to come with your own ideas and inquiries and we will, together with you, look for the best way to answer your question. If you want to share some of your own experiences, you can help the others. Get in touch with us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
