3 September - Ambassador program

Join our Ambassador program and make our newcomers feel welcome!

Would you like to support those newcomers from your home country arriving to southern Sweden? If the answer is yes, then perhaps you should be one of our ambassadors.

The Ambassador program is designed to take your experience of moving to Sweden and guide someone from your own country as you share the same language and culture. Frequent questions that arise for those newcomers can span from what you think about international schools, healthcare to understanding where one can find favorite products from a home country.

We would like to have internationals who have lived in Sweden for about one year. It’s a benefit if you speak a basic level of Swedish but not a requirement.

If this sounds like something you would like to do, then please register for this meeting.

This is a voluntary activity that we hope will be enjoyable to you as well as helpful for the newcomer.

If you should have any questions, please feel free to come by our drop-in service on Thursdays between 9:00-12:00. Or contact us at lich@lund.se.

Make a difference as an International!

 

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event. Thank you!
