Newcomers Network Service



All International newcomers to Geneva are invited to lunchtime conferences held throughout the year at La Pastorale. These conferences provide newcomers the opportunity to discover the practical, social and cultural sides of life in the city. The presentations are followed by a sansdwich lunch with the speakers and the Geneva Welcome Network members.
Invitations are sent each year to all newcomers who have registered on the Welcome programme.
