30 May – Leisure guides

Get inspired to discover the wonderful indoor and outdoor activities in Southern Sweden!

You can count yourself among the lucky ones if you ended up living in Lund or Malmö for a shorter or longer period of your life. Lund is ranked among the best places to live in Sweden. And that is not for nothing. Swedish lifestyle may be new to you where the balance of life/work is a very important ingredient but the many (cheap) musea’s and especially the vast outdoors is another one.

There are many places of which you probably not have heard about, or found the time to visit yet. Let yourself be inspired by Andrea Maasland, our Leisure Guide and expat herself, who will tell you about many hidden gems to visit and to explore. To get it from an expat perspective is different than visiting a tourist agency. Since she loves telling or hearing about places that are special, it is also a chance to share your favorite place.

Found a place great for kids, exciting nature, wonderful food that she did not mention? Sharing and inspiring is the main goal of this event, so feel free to tell a bit about it. And of course, we will share some seasonal tips.

23 May – International Private Law and how it affects expats

Different countries have different rules regarding your private life, work, studies and other aspects of your stay in a new country – for example concerning matters of marriage, divorce, custody, inheritance, labor law, and residence.

For expats, it is important to understand which country’s law is most applicable for settling such matters. This often requires complicated assessments that should be looked at by an expert.

At this event you will learn about the types of information important to know regarding matters that might require legal help while living in Sweden.
