About us

Community
Membership Organization


The Worldconnectors are a cross-generational network of opinion leaders from various sectors of society, including government and politics, media, non-governmental organizations, the private sector and the scientific, research and spiritual communities. They develop new strategies and visions for international issues based on their different areas of expertise. Their goal is to achieve an open, tolerant, optimistic and proactive society in the Netherlands which can consequently be positioned as a global player.

Working method

Four times a year, the Worldconnectors hold a Round Table, where they meet to discuss relevant social issues and to review the current activities of the network. These plenary meetings are attended by Worldconnectors and special invitees (usually external experts). 

Themes
At least once a year, the Board takes stock of potential new themes and, together with the members of the Worldconnectors, selects the most relevant themes. Worldconnectors are invited to join one of the thematic working groups and the members consider what contribution the working group can make with regard to their theme. Together they develop new perspectives and initiatives that provide solutions to the questions at hand.

Partner organizations
Partnerships are forged predominantly with regard to specific subjects. The diverse partners all contribute according to their capacity.
