Welcome to ZürieXpats Hike & Outdoor and Sandbox!!!
Probably you are a needed Ausländer in Switzerland, whose productivity helps the Swiss Economy to maintain the highest international standards. And why? Because;
Swiss Economy need qualified human resources to keep the wheels turning to keep wealth and health on a sustainable level
there is a shortage of Human capacity; intellectual capital and without expats the society will collaps
There are NOT ENOUGH SWISS available to do all high skilled job or could be educated to do so in future;
Head hunters search globally highly skilled international professionals, to help the SWISS society with there expertise in the region ZH.
Then the ZürieXpats Meetup Group is meant for YOU!
Züri Expats was formed to address this ongoing challenge. As we where profiled quite good at a Rundschau raportage on SF1 in February 26, 2013, we try to make a positive difference and work closely with the city authorities.
So let's get into action and see more of Switzerland, we know the best trails and canyons!
Summer hikes all over Switzerland for all levels
Rafting in the greates canyons you will ever find
Horse riding in the Montafoon valley national park is not forgotten
Paragliding over the Alps and feeling like a eagle
And Zurich has a top quality of life. It has a lake with pure clear water surrounded by hills and is very close to many scenic mountains.
Summer is finally here, let's take full advantage of it and join us for one of our legendary ZürieXpats BBQ's!!!
So if you want to socialize and be active this summer among your peers, feeling at home and enjoying life...THIS is the place to be!

Welcome to ZürieXpats Sandbox!!!
Why does the Züri eXpats SANDBOX exist?
Earlier this year our parent Meetup group "Züri eXpats" grew by leaps and bounds, thanks to a motley crew of savvy social butterflies and oodles of volunteer help. As this group expanded and merged with another popular Meetup group, it chose to capitalize & focus on a winning formula for certain events and locations. This left our members without a creative outlet to experiment with their OWN event ideas.
Thus the SANDBOX was developed, as an inspired and evolving entity BY & FOR our current Züri eXpat members.
What does the SANDBOX mean exactly?
A Sandbox has a dual meaning for tech-saavy Expats like us. On the one hand, it evokes childhood memories of a simpler time, where we all got along on the playground, sharing toys and letting our imaginations run wild.
For adults in the software development realm, a Sandbox takes on many of those childhood aspects in fostering personal creativity and growth too. In a nutshell, a developer sandbox is a SAFE, protected environment to test out new software & code edits that rely on real-world feedback & access to existing hardware without crashing the actual "live" public servers.

OUR GOAL >> The Züri eXpats SANDBOX strives to be a safe, welcoming and open platform for the creative exploration of new Meetup Event ideas & formats, by & for our members. Grow your Inner Event Planner! We'll provide you with feedback and guidance, and help foster your event ideas. We may even promote your event on our other Social Media Platforms – Meetup, Facebook, LinkedIn, Xing, etc.
Here's the basic guidelines to get started:
1) Become a member.
2) Shoot us a quick email on what type of Event you'd like to create. We'll give you some constructive feedback (if needed) for quick changes & tips for improvement to your Event concept.
3) Once we green-light your project, we'll make YOU an Event Host. This will allow you to immediately create your very own Meetup Event on the SANDBOX.
4) By creating quality, recurring events with increasing attendees and positive feedback, we will lend our Marketing Muscle to your cause by cross-promoting your event(s) on our other Social Media Platforms – Meetup, Facebook, LinkedIn, Xing, etc. In addition, we could create "Züri eXpats co-branded marketing materials" such as flyers and banners, which will further grow your Event ideas beyond what any one person could do on their own.
5) For those Event Planners that show promise, rest assured that we'll have our eyes on YOU! If you are up to the challenge, we may invite you to become one of our main group's planning committee members, which has its' own perks and privileges :)
Please Note:This group is an extension of our other Meetup Group called "Züri eXpats". If you like, please go to this Meetup Group Link and sign up there as well for updates on our regularly-planned, social events…
WARNING: what we will NOT tolerate >> Events and/or Event Planners that foster a sexist or threatening environment for our women members and guests. This is a key point; if we receive negative feedback from our members or guests about your activities, upon review, you will be removed immediately from our platforms. We will vigorously defend our reputation as an Expat Group that is female-friendly and NOT a "Meat Market" for pick-up artists and sexual predators.
We look forward to helping you grow your ideas in the SANDBOX in 2013 and beyond!
