Groningen, a Global City?
More and more internationals find their way to Groningen. Students and staff from both universities come from all over the world, and companies are also starting to recruit talent from abroad. Newcomers can bring new perspectives and contribute to the innovative capacity, resilience and diversity of the universities and the city of Groningen. However, the famous Dutch tolerance and openness are often experienced more as a reputation than a reality. Internationals coming to Groningen deal with housing shortages, discrimination and barriers to social integration. How do internationals experience Groningen, what do ‘stadjers’ think of all these new influences; can we be a more inclusive city? A diverse evening with talks, discussions and interviews.
This event is organized in collaboration with City Central.
