We encourage social activities by providing materials and subsidies to residents that like to initiate such activities. We also assist in the organization of activities, for example by arranging volunteers or offering help with the application of a license. In addition to social events in Grasrijk we support activities for all Meerhoven inhabitants together with other residents’ associations in Meerhoven.

Advocacy
We regularly meet with the municipality, the police and other city and non-profit agencies to discuss neigbourhood issues such as parking, traffic, safety, youth, district heating and the shopping center. We also maintain close contacts with fellow residents’ associations in Meerhoven and national organizations. As such, we are an effective force in making a stronger neighbourhood.

2nd-Meerhoven-Expat-MeetingMeerhoven Internationals Platform
Grasrijk is the home to an increasing number of internationals because the neighbourhood is close to Brainport, an innovative high-tech region where Eindhoven University of Technology, ASML and Philips are located. In fact, we have set up a special English language platform for internationals. The platform is used to update internationals on relevant news and is also a great way to get in touch with each other.
