Sitting with Strangers began in Groningen, a Dutch city with a large expat community. The idea was to encourage local Dutch people and expats to meet and talk about how wonderful life is in Netherlands’ northern most province. Coronavirus changed the game, we could no longer meet face-to-face. With most of the world in lockdown suddenly everyone is experiencing the isolation faced by many expats. SwS took on a new dimension, going online and  Sitting with Strangers is an initiative of Be Extraordinary Me Now workshop, organised by Buitengewoonzijn NU (https://www.buitengewoonzijn.nu) with the support of Connect International (connect-int.org) connecting people around the world. We are not meant to be alone.
