The platform for life's big questions


Whether you’re looking for ways to reflect on life, looking for a meaningful conversation or you’re interested in practical philosophy and religion; At NEWConnective, we ask the bigger questions, have meaningful conversations and look for connection. NEWConnective organizes events on personal development, and questions on life, meaning and personal beliefs. NEWConnective brings students together to discuss and reflect on life’s bigger questions.

Below you’ll find our agenda with upcoming activities. There are several kinds of programs we organize regularly, but each semester you can expect us to do some unique activities as well, for example during holidays.  

One of our regular programs is our podcast The Connective, in which we join in conversation with students and staff on themes like activism, grief, and social anxiety. We also organize meditations in the VU’s Silence Room (HG-1A57) throughout the year. You can find the current time slots for meditations here. Lastly, we organize a mourning group each semester, for students who are mourning as a result of losing a loved one. 

There are many (student) organizations at VU with whom we are happy to co-organize. Often times we hold our activities in 3D; organize social gatherings with Life is Better in 3D; facilitate dialogue with groups like FAM, VU Pride, and the SWP; and produce our podcast with VU Campusradio. We’re always open to new partners. 

Do you want to stay up to date? Follow us on Instagram; or subscribe to our newsletter (coming soon). You’re also most welcome in our WhatsApp group chat, in which you can also provide us with input for activities. If you join us there, please be so kind to introduce yourself publicly.
