Did you recently move to Aarhus? Could you use some good advice during your first time living in the "City of Smiles"?  

Join one of our cosy Speed Buddying events to get matched with a Welcome Buddy who can give you tips about life in the country of hygge. 

We regularly host events. Find the next one here

How does it work?

At the event, you'll get to talk to different people and rank them depending on how you get along. When you get matched, the coordinator will put you in touch with your Welcome Buddy. We advise you to meet at least three times afterwards.  

Why you should sign up:

  • get advice from someone who knows Aarhus
  • get introduced to new activities, places and social networks
  • discover different aspects of life and culture

I didn’t just get a soft landing in Denmark thanks to my Welcome Buddy, I also got a new friend. - Shiru, newcomer from Singapore

Become a Welcome Buddy

Are you either Danish or have been living in Denmark for some time? Are you ready to help a newcomer settle in Denmark?

Sign up as a Welcome Buddy to:

  •  give advice and support
  •  share experiences about everyday life
  •  introduce to new activities, places and social networks

At first, I thought it was something I was doing for someone else, but then I figured out it was just as much for me. - Anders, Welcome Buddy from Denmark

NB:  This programme isn't a job mentorship but mostly about socialising and adjusting to life in Denmark.
