Welcome to NEWConnective

How do you give meaning to life? How can you make a meaningful contribution to the world? How do you prepare for adversity and loss? What would you like to get better at?

At NEWConnective, we ask good questions to have real conversations, to find a connection with yourself and others. Questions you don’t always need to have an answer to, but which are definitely important, especially as a student. Questions that are sometimes overshadowed by other important matters, like deciding what study programme to pick, or shaping your social life.

NEWConnective organizes events about personal development, (folk) wisdoms, and quests for meaning.  For example, our great prejudice dinner is all about underlining the consequences of our prejudices. We also give workshops for study associations, and have conversations about loss in mourning groups. We bring people together from all backgrounds to discuss and reflect on these topics, in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

We make sure to send you home with plenty of new insights and a feeling of connection. On to the next important question.

Connect MeBook

Connect MeBook - Part 1

To help and inspire you on your reflection journey, we, the NEWConnective team, developed the Connect MeBook. A book in which you, as a start, can connect with yourself by reading inspiring texts and doing multiple reflections on the meaning of life. Want to read the other parts as well?

During the lockdown, we suddenly had a lot of time to reflect on ourselves and our lives. We had time to wonder what really matters to us and what kind of life we actually wanted to live, during and after the pandemic. We began to realize how important it is to be connected with others, and with ourselves. It has brought many of us to a search for meaning in our lives. What is really important in my life? What is my purpose in life? How does being vulnerable affect us in the long run? Get inspired and get started!
