In November 2014 the first meeting for internationals was held in De Blinkerd in Grasrijk. The meeting was organized by the United Residents’ Associations Meerhoven in cooperation with Holland Expat Center South, The Hub Eindhoven for Expats and the Municipality of Eindhoven. About 55 internationals from more than ten countries registered to the meeting. It was the first event for internationals in Meerhoven which brought together internationals living in Meerhoven to discuss issues related to the urban heating system, parking, communication, activities and immigration rules. Most importantly, people got to know each other better. In March 2015 a follow-up meeting was organized at child care center Korein Kinderplein where children of expats were entertained in a separate room by professional staff members of Korein. A third meeting was held on Sunday 6 September 2015. See the article on the news platform Innovation Origins.
Meerhoven Internationals Platform is coordinated by Diana Angelova. Diana has been living in Meerhoven since 2015 and has been actively involved in the activities of the Platform since 2017. “Meerhoven is a diverse and multicultural neighbourhood. Being international myself, I know how challenging it is to build meaningful relationships and social life in a completely new environment. Having a vibrant and engaged community where everyone feels welcomed is one of the goals I am passionate about reaching.”
Internationals are more than welcome to join the platform and are invited to register through the online registration form.
