Did you know that The Hague ranked higher than Amsterdam and Rotterdam as the best city for Internationals to live*? We are so proud to be based in this vibrant multi-cultural city and to be a valuable resource for expats living here. Through volunteering and partnerships with dozens of organizations around The Hague, we have helped both Dutch and internationals interact and entwine cultures and livelihoods with one-another. However, we do understand that there are many perception gaps that are not-so gezellig:
- One group feels isolated and the other wonders why they stay separate
- One group is direct and the other finds that rude
- One group says they do not have hierarchy, the other says “oh yes you do!”
We want to challenge these main perception gaps and more between the Internationals and the local Dutch community in The Hague. We at Volunteer The Hague along with the Vrijwilligers Academie are inviting both the local Dutch and local internationals to create a solution-bridge and close the Perception Gap. In this workshop, we will identify the most important and common mis-communications and then break into groups with one-another and develop solutions. Roll up your sleeves, invite your friends and help us address this directly in this challenging, fun and hands-on workshop.
We look forward to meeting you. Hurry and register now for free!
