Leisure In Lyngby

Connecting expats with local clubs and associations

Background

Leisure in Lyngby brings together both international citizens and local associations in Lyngby-Taarbæk with the intention of creating a platform and web portal that can serve as a model for associations and communities all over Denmark.

The project connects local businesses, expats, associations and students. Local clubs and associations have adjusted their websites in order to attract international citizens and a number of expats contribute with knowledge and guidance concerning their needs and expectations. Students and lecturers from Cphbusiness have been involved in the development of the web portal. Watch the video (1.17 min.):

Purpose

The project aims to integrate a greater number of international citizens in local associations by making the associations’ websites and materials more accessible and informative for non-native Danish speakers.
