In September 2021 the initiative “Welcome September” – a month of welcoming internationals to Denmark – will take place in Denmark. This month, organizations all over the country will open their doors and invite internationals to a number of events.
In Odense the initiative is coordinated by us, International Community Odense, and we would like to show some of all the amazing things Odense has to offer. That’s why we are reaching out to you!
Do you want to participate?
If you want to welcome Odense’s internationals in your association you can organize an event as a part of the welcome month. For instance, an “open house”-event, where you introduce your association and invite the participants to try out your activities.
What do you need to do?
- Decide if you want to participate with an event and send us information about time, place, and a short description of the event by June 1, 2021 the latest.
- Send us additional details about the event, including a link for signing up, by August 10, 2021 the latest.
- Ensure that your event complies with valid corona restrictions regarding number of participants etc.
(and be prepared to change your plans, in case restrictions change in September).
What will we do?
- Share the word about your event on our social media platforms and newsletter, reaching thousands of people.
- Coordinate the welcome month locally and make sure all events in Odense will become a part of the official program of the national welcome month. Hopefully, there will also be some media coverage.
Why is this welcome month organized?
We want to give internationals a warm welcome to Odense and invite them to join our local community. We want to show why Denmark is a great place to live, study and work and contribute to the attraction and retention of international employees to Denmark.
At the same time, it’s a great opportunity to show your association – and who knows, maybe get some new members?
