Community

Stichting KEI not only tries to introduce the KEI participant to the student city of Groningen in all of its aspects, but also tries to make the KEI participant aware of various social themes. Both during the KEI-week and during the rest of the year is Stichting KEI actively supporting and contributing to the solving of several social dillema’s and problems.

Charity KEI-week 2020

Each year Stichting KEI chooses a charity organization which we collect money for during the KEI-week. In 2020, the KEI Foundation collected money for the charity: Ronald Mc Donald house. This is a cooperation with Ronald Mc Donald house Groningen.

 

 

 

 

 

Sustainability

Next to that, Stichting KEI tries to set up a non-sustainable event such as the KEI-week and the daily running of the organization as sustainable as possible. In 2018 we got a certificate of sustainability for our efforts, the ‘Green Key’ in gold.

Dare 2B Aware

During the KEI-week we are organizing a social campaign, it is called Dare 2B Aware and it has daily social topics to which attention is paid. You will see the logo below a lot during the KEI-week!

During the KEI-week you get to know all the different aspects of Groningen. The KEI-week provides general information about renting a room student grants. You can also get in touch with sports organizations, student societies and other sorts of associations. Besides all this, there will be a lot of festivities and activities which you can participate in.

Can the KEI-week be seen as an initiation?

No, not at all! You should see the KEI-week primarily as something that is just fun to do. It is a week full of information. Signing up for the KEI-week does not mean you are obligated to participate in the online events. You are free to join the events you like.

Is it possible for me to change KEI-groups during the KEI-week?

Yes it is. If you want to change your KEI-group for any reason you can contact the OFFICE-crew. To do so, you can call them (050 363 80 90), email them (info@keiweek.nl) or contact them via Whatsapp (+31 6 4422 6680).

If you have found another group which you think is more fun or suits you better? Thats also possible, you’ll will have to contact the OFFICE-crew about your replacement. This is important because we need to know which group you’re a part of in case of an emergency.

The KEI-week is the oldest, largest and cheapest introduction week in the Netherlands.
