It’s time to celebrate! In July, InterNations will be scheduling special Events and Activities to honor our nearly 400 vibrant Local Communities around the world.
• our Local Ambassadors, who regularly host so many great get-togethers for their international guests
• our Group Consuls, who create countless Activities for other expats and global minds with the same interests
• the participants in our InterNations Volunteer Program, who give back to less privileged people in their communities
• all the InterNations members who enjoy getting connected online as well as offline
In addition to fêting our active community life, the theme is also supposed to provide a local twist to the ideas that our InterNations Ambassadors and Consuls come up with. This is the perfect opportunity to get creative and provide especially our expat members with a local-style experience or treat.
For example, in Lugano event attendees can take advantage of the Ticino’s warm summers and picturesque lake: They will be chilling under the July sun at the Lido di Agno, aka Golfo di Sole, one of the region’s most popular public beaches.
The San Francisco Community has decided to combine their international event with the 4th of July celebrations for Independence Day in the US. Thus, they can all watch the fireworks display over the waterfront together.
And a bit further to the north than sunny California, the InterNations Malmö Community explores one of the most charming and authentic corners in town, the quaint historical neighborhood of St Gertrud, which now hosts a conference center, several pubs and restaurants, and a quiet courtyard.
These are only three upcoming gatherings from our InterNations Event Calendar for July. Just check our site to see how your Local Community celebrates!
Of course, our Activity Groups also have plenty of fun in store. Social Nations Malta, for instance, will attend the local Marsovin Wine Festival, dedicated to Maltese vintages; Dinner Nations Oslo tries some traditional Norwegian cuisine, and one of our groups in Istanbul invites you to a Turkish weekend brunch with a splendid view of the Bosporus.
Yes, in July there’ll be indeed plenty of time and reason to celebrate, no matter where you are. Enjoy!
