About ACCESS Winter 2014 e-zine

Main theme: Galactic Dutch

With the cold months approaching, international e-zine ACCESS takes an interesting look at another frigid journey: that through space. 

Just as when moving to a new country, venturing out to a settle a new planet requires preparation and lots of it. Read the fascinating quest of the Dutch to colonise Mars via a mix of entertainment and applied technologies dubbed Mars One in A Dutch Space Odyssey.

Looking to explore space right here in the Netherlands? The winter edition of ACCESS offers tips for discovering the amazing developments taking place at the European Space Research and Technology Centre in Noordwijk. 

Or read about another sort of "other worldly" experience: that of an international wedding. Jeroen and Mandie van der Meer recount their quest to merge the traditions of the U.S and the Netherlands for their nuptials while offering tips for those looking to do the same.


ACCESS is a not-for-profit organisation that supports the international community in the Netherlands.

It is staffed by an enthusiastic team of around 115 volunteers from more than 35 countries, all of whom are trained to provide comprehensive information, advice and support, and are empathetic to the experience of internationals.
