Friday 9 September 09:30 – HIC Coffee Morning

Join us for a morning of good company and conversation, pick up helpful tips and make new friends at Bruket Kaffebar!

Social get-togethers are essential when you move to another country. They’re a relaxed way to make new contacts and ease your way into your new surroundings. They are also the perfect opportunity to ask all those little questions which might feel insignificant, but you’ll soon find that everyone else has been asking them too! We warmly welcome you to our bi-monthly coffee mornings!

Address: Bruksgatan 9, Helsingborg

During our events, we sometimes take photographs and short videos to share on the HIC website and social media. If you prefer not to be in any photos or videos, please let us know at the beginning of the event. Thank you!

Thursday 30 June 17:00 – Reuse, Repair, Recycle: the Circular Economy in Helsingborg

Discover Helsingborg’s new House of Resources, tour the globally unique RecoLab facility and find out about the proposed Reuse Shopping Mall
 

We’ll start at the House of Resources in Oceanhamnen, a project that focuses on recycling and circularity. It will be a hub for renovation, repairs, and upcycling, with groceries available to buy and collect in the evening. The House of Resources is part of a three-year EU project Interreg CIRC North Sea Region, a collaboration between several Nordic and northern European countries.

At 17.30 we’ll take a short walk to the showroom at Recolab for a tour and discussion. RecoLab is a world-first water treatment facility, testbed, and exhibition hall. We’ll hear about the facility, its function in Oceanhamnen, and its global significance, then join interior designer and recycler Helena Bergqvist of RepairIt to find out about the study she and Camilla Grundelius of Kantikant have made into the feasibility and desirability of having a Reuse Shopping Mall in Helsingborg. The study was commissioned by the City of Helsingborg and NSR. This is your opportunity to give your input!

Where to meet

Meet at the northeast corner of Magasin 405 (IKEA Market). There is a big white square tent on the landside, with an H22 sign that says Resursens hus /House of Resources. The address is Redaregatan 25, Oceanhamnen, Helsingborg. The site is next to NSR.

 During our events, we sometimes take photographs and short videos to share on the HIC website and social media. If you prefer not to be in any photos or videos, please let us know at the beginning of the event. Thank you!

Tuesday 14 June 09:00 – Attracting and Retaining International Talent in Helsingborg

How can businesses in North-West Skåne support their international talent? How do we make sure that employers offer the best possible conditions for talent and their families? How can public and private actors collaborate? Why is a support system even necessary?

We invite employers, recruiters, and municipal representatives to a morning of presentations, discussions, and networking at Open22. Your host, Sally Russell of Helsingborg International Connections, will talk about HIC’s work in welcoming and supporting international talents in the Helsingborg area and examine how public and private partnerships can boost talent attraction and retention.

We’ll discuss how initiatives such as HIC create value for employers, while reducing isolation and loneliness, promoting good health and well-being, and building sustainable cities and communities. Our guest speakers will include expats and public and private actors who will shine a light on these essential but often overlooked topics.

This event has been arranged in collaboration with H22 City Expo, Open 22 at Mindpark, and Helsingborg Municipality.
