GO GLOCAL Conference 

GO GLOCAL is a celebration of international Aarhus.

The GO GLOCAL conference celebrates the vibrancy of international life in the ‘City of Smiles’ and recognize efforts to improve internationalization by granting two awards, The GO GLOCAL Award and the Best of International Aarhus Award.

The conference is also a forum where businesses, politicians, grassroots organizations and individuals can inspire each other to improve efforts to attract and retain international employees and improve quality of life for international families in Aarhus.

Take a minute to GO GLOCAL

We’ve produced a series of one minute stories of expats and repats who are contributing to making Aarhus a more diverse, international city.

You cna check out one of them here from when we did Go Glocal with the Fazekas family. The Fazekas have lived all around the world in big cities and had to use cars to get around. Now they love to bike around the city of Aarhus. They moved to Aarhus in 2019 for work. A huge benefit here was the Aarhus International School, where their kids could start.
