"We're Loud and we're Proud!" Let's celebrate! Let's Party!
As "Auslanders" in Switzerland, we've found that there are several, country-specific cultural celebrations (holidays and sporting events) that just are not given the proper love & attention that we are accustomed to back in our homeland(s
). And since the Canton of Zurich is comprised of just over 30% foreign nationals, all with diverse backgrou
nds and cultural heritages , we felt that it was time for us to unite.Thus, Züri Expats was formed to address this ongoing challenge.
Later in the summer, we're planning numerous social gatherings around international sporting events that are near & dear to our European hearts – Football and the Olympics! There is the European Football (Soccer) Championships, starting on June 8th. Visit the Euro Cup website <here> for match details. Then there's the Olympic Games in London, starting July 27th and running through August 12th. Visit the London Olympic Games Website <here> for highlights and schedules.
Unlike some of the local press that's been written about Auslanders of late, we are not all criminals; we want to showcase the open and festive side to our many cultures. By focusing on public events and social gatherings in and around Zurich, we hope to bring an awareness of the "Expat Experience" and to contribute POSITIVELY to the SWISS LIFESTYLE as well. ALL are welcome to attend and contribute to this experience…whether you are Swiss or Auslander.
We look forward to meeting you and welcome you on this obama like strategy driven plitical entety where we ask you quick by like or dislike about _Expat related items in the swiss envririonment; like City of zurich will rase taxes for Expats; a stop on Expats living in Seefeld; or you actually have rights as Expat coming out of an EU country!!!!!
Please take 5 minutes to get member of Zurich Expats 2012 group and read the goals, and of course we will put on here all good parties as always
