What we're about

It's very simple: time to get expats out of their fishbowl, and into the ocean called Amsterdam! :)

When do you TRULY connect to the city anymore? Meeting Dutch people, experiencing new ideas and concepts, helping out with charities and having a place to go to for any problem you might run into.

AMS Connected modestly aims to do Three Groundbreaking Earth-shattering Things:

1. Connect The City more to the expats

Sneak peak at new concepts, connect with new Dutch start-ups, show life in Amsterdam with a twist!

2. Connect to Other Fishbowls

Get to know Dutch people (tough cookies), help out at Dutch charities once every 2 months, and meet and greet with some of the most interesting Amsterdam folks around!

3. Back to True Connection

Putting expats in a room with fancy music doesn't create *MAGIC*. For that to happen, we go deeper, and have creative, fun, and serious activities, pulling you more and more out of your comfort zone, and into a true Group Feeling again!

Happy to have our team of organizers help me with organizing the best activities out there for all of you, after Rowin and I started off the group in 2014. Time to CONNECT. The city is, after all, our playground..... :)

Honduras in Crisis - Live Talk and Q&A

Online event

Dear Expat Community in Amsterdam! I am happy to announce that we have been invited to join an informative online event about the situation that's happening in Honduras at the moment, as this year has seen various crises: ongoing political unrest, the Covid-19 pandemic, and two major hurricanes in the span of two weeks that have decimated much of the country. Join this talk with Jared Olson and Antonia McGrath: Writer and journalist Jared Olson has written for The Nation, Vice News, and the New Humanitarian, among others, about the struggle for justice in Honduras and across Central America. His recent stories have covered Honduras’ water conflicts in the country’s Bajo Aguán valley, and starvation politics amid the pandemic. You can check out his work at https://jaredolson.org After a talk about some of his recent work in Honduras, Jared will join educate.’s founder and director Antonia McGrath for a live discussion and interactive Q&A. 🔈Language: English 🗓Tuesday December 1 ⏰ 19:30 CEST / 12:30 ET The event will be held on Zoom.
