International Citizen Days 2022

Welcome to Greater Copenhagen – and welcome to International Citizen Days 2022, which is part of the national month of Welcome September.

Taking place in the heart of Copenhagen on 23 & 24 September, International Citizen Days bring together public authorities, private organisations and local communities for two days of endless inspiration on housing, job and social life through a carefully curated fair together with talks, debates and activities relevant to all newcomers.

A roof over your head, a good job and a social network are prerequisites for a good start to a new life away from your familiar surroundings. But they are not always easy to come by. Where do you start your housing hunt? How do you land your first job in a new country? And what is the key to living an engaged, active social life in one of the happiest, most liveable places on Earth?

The programme is jam-packed and tailored specifically for internationals, providing a wealth of knowledge that will make settling in in Greater Copenhagen a smooth journey for the entire family including your accompanying partner and children. The event is free and takes place on two different locations over two days. Make sure to save the dates and spread the word – all you need to do is to sign up, show up and have fun. Ses vi?

FRIDAY 23 SEPTEMBER 2022, 17.00-20.00

This evening is devoted to exploring the field of job and career in the historical setting of Børsen, starting with a warm welcome by Mayor of Employment and Integration in Copenhagen Jens-Kristian Lütken and CEO of the Danish Chamber of Commerce Brian Mikkelsen.

You have the chance to meet a wide range of companies looking to hire international talent together with organisations working with recruitment and professional job guidance. You will be guided through traditional models of collective bargaining and the inescapable codes of Danish workplace culture with plenty of opportunities to mingle and widen your professional network. Seats on Friday will be on a first-come, first-serve basis so make sure to sign up now.
