Learn about North Jutland: The International’s Fair kicks off next week

by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

On Tuesday, September 21, the International House North Denmark will be hosting the International’s Fair North Denmark after two years of absence due to COVID-19.

The fair invites newly-arrived international citizens to North Jutland where they can learn more about the region.

It can be difficult to find your footing in a new country and for this reason, the International House invites many of the region’s public and private organizations to the fair.

Here, internationals can ask questions about everything from moving to the region and taxes. On top of getting to know Danes through unions and volunteer organizations, they can also use the fair as an opportunity to meet other internationals in the same situation as themselves. 

The new International Award North Denmark will also be announced at the International’s Fair.

The award will go to a person or organization who has helped make North Denmark a more international place to live, and who is passionate about helping both new arrivals and internationals who’ve been here for years. The winner will be announced at 16:00.

The project manager, Lasse Frimand Jensen, explains why the International House North Denmark is hosting the fair.

“North Denmark attracts many international citizens. A large group of these citizens comes here to work, and currently, we have 31.574 international citizens working in North Denmark, a number that has increased by 98 percent since 2008.

We know how important it is that you feel well-received when you arrive in a new place, and we at the International House North Denmark want to help them with exactly that.

We work to get the internationals to know our lovely region, while also ensuring that they stay here by helping them find jobs for their partners and spouses, by supporting entrepreneurship, and by providing information on cultural, leisure, and networking options,” project manager Lasse Frimand Jensen says.

The International House North Denmark is a project under Aalborg Municipality’s business department, Business Aalborg.

The project’s goal is to attract, receive and keep qualified international workforces in North Jutland. Thereby helping North Danish businesses, their international employees, and their accompanying spouses with the challenges that come with moving and creating a life in a new country.

The International House North Denmark is a place where international citizens from all of North Denmark can go get help with jobs, businesses, and entrepreneurship as well as leisure and cultural opportunities.
