About this eventThis “**Lisbon Newcomers Welcome Club**” gathering is for people who are new to Lisbon or want to welcome them, and increase their number of connections. The first meetup was held November 2021 and since we have welcomed 1180+ people to these events. Each event creates new bonds between newcomers to Lisbon and those who have been here for a while in a simple, fun, yet effective way.
Your host for this event will be Richard with support from our amazing team of volunteers: Agnieszka, Debbie, Giselle, Gloria, Vanessa, Jacqui, Magdalena, Gui, and others.
For those interested in volunteering we are going to a nearby bar after the event, where you can meet team members and find out more about what’s involved. please approach Richard or other team members if that sounds like you and we will invite you along.
We want to strengthen our connections with local Portuguese people and groups who are interesting in getting to know positive new arrivals in Lisbon. Please help us with that. If you want to help with our events or partner with us, great. Apply [here](https://forms.gle/EeLboZcYBrLesVt26).
Our events are open and welcoming to people from all backgrounds. You will be surprised to see how many different nationalities come together at these events.

**This is not a speed dating/pickup type event. Everyone who attends is entitled to feel safe, not be harassed or pressured. We are introducing enhanced measures to address this issue following some complaints.**
We will have a structured first sixty minutes with icebreakers aimed at making things easy for people to connect with one another. Then participants are welcome to hang out and socialise as they wish after the structured part of the meeting is over.
If you have a community initiative you want to share or announce, let us know in advance.
We need volunteers to help us develop the project. From simple things like being early to welcome people, through to PR and graphic design and a website. Let us know if that sounds like you and apply to join the team [here](https://forms.gle/EeLboZcYBrLesVt26)
We aim to be a local community of internationally minded people in the heart of Lisbon. You are welcome to be a part of it.
The idea is to maintain and sustain the community spirit that sometimes emerged during Covid and help build back better and stronger than before.
