Expat Committee Benoordenhout

The 'Benoordenhout' is a neighbourhood with more than 40% inhabitants originating from outside the Netherlands.

  • to strengthen the involvement of the expats in the Benoordenhout with their residential environment; 
  • to support the integration of expats with their fellow local residents by means of organizing excursions to businesses and organizations in the area, as well as bringing to the attention of expats local activities in our neighbourhood, such as Koninginnedag activities, the visit of Sinterklaas, concerts, etc. 
  • to provide information in English by means our bi-monthly neighbourhood magazine.
