Thursdays at 10:00 – HIC Online Fikas in April

We may not be meeting in real life right now but we want to stay connected! A chat lifts our spirits and helps us get through the day, so we have arranged a weekly online fika on Thursdays.

Sign up on Eventbrite and you’ll receive a link by email which covers all the meetings in April. We’ll keep the registration open until a few minutes before the event on April 30th so that you can sign up at any time in the month and join in easily on Thursdays. If the conversation is flowing, we can extend to our allotted 40 minutes and then restart the meeting to keep going 🙂

We are using Zoom – you don’t need an account, just allow the application to launch when prompted.

See you online!

Wednesday 1 April 10:00 – Let’s Talk: For Internationals Living Abroad

Are you worried about the current crisis? Missing your family “back home”? As internationals living abroad we find ways of managing the day to day challenges of living in another country and the lack of close family around us, but under times of stress these challenges become amplified.

Johanna Lundgren Coaching and Helsingborg International Connections have come together to bring you a series of Facebook live streams for the international community.

The series will provide a platform for the international community to come together to talk about difficulties, challenges, fears and wins. It will provide space for becoming aware that we all have similar challenges, that there is no need to feel isolated and alone or ashamed of those challenges. To create a safe space to vent your concerns and views. In a friendly non-judgmental way, the series will help you see what is available to you and find new and creative ways to solve challenges. To look at yourself in an organic way and serve the whole person (Body, Emotions, Mind, Spirit)

We invite you to join us live on Facebook ( From the comfort of your home), starting this Wednesday 1st April at 10:00!

Thursday 23 April 18:00 – CANCELLED: Housing in Sweden

We’ve arranged this event to help you understand the complexities of renting or buying a home in Sweden. Are you concerned about your rights as a tenant or wondering how the mortgage system works? As an international living in Sweden, there will no doubt be differences to the systems in your own country and you may be uncertain of where to find reliable advice.

Join us for an informative evening with plenty of time to ask questions of our guest speakers.

More details and registration to follow.

Thursday 12 March 10:00 – CANCELLED – Little HIC: Parent & Baby Meet Up
