All international newcomers to Geneva are invited to lunchtime conferences held throughout the year at La Pastorale. Those conferences provide newcomers the opportunity to discover the practical, social and cultural sides of life in the city. An informal sandwich lunch will be offered in the presence of the speakers and the Geneva Welcome Network members.
 
Invitations are sent to all 2017-2018 newcomers who have registered to the Welcome programme.
