We are an international social club for newcomers and long-timers in Oslo,Norway. The purpose of the club is to promote international friendship as well as offer advice and support for living in Oslo and its surroundings. We also offer our membership a variety of organized activities and we raise funds for local and international charities.
ICON’s membership is made up of many nationalities including French, British, Indian, Swedish, Norwegian, Malaysian, Belgian, American, Brazilian, Singaporean, Dutch, Vietnamese, Danish, Irish, Australian, Finnish, Italian, Canadian... we currently have 26 countries represented and we welcome more!
Every month between September and June, we hold a meeting to catch up with old friends and to greet new members over a cup of coffee (see Meetings page). Our meetings take a variety of forms: formal talks, social gatherings and fun events. Topics are varied and have included information about life - and skiing! – in Norway, coping with culture shock, embassies sharing information about their countries and also our Winter and Summer social lunches. We also have a monthly raffle with proceeds donated to various designated charities. There is something for everyone at an ICON meeting!
We also arrange informal social get-togethers at various cafes in Oslo, which anyone is welcome to join.
A range of activities are organised through the club, including skiing, tennis, walking, Mah-Jong, book club, film night, goal setting, yoga, sewing, knitting and painting. ICON also arranges trips to museums and other places of interest in and around Oslo (see Activites page). Special events take place throughout the year, including a Christmas and June Lunch. There is an ICON blog details of which will be sent to you when you join. Before the blog there was a newsletter past issues can be accessed via the website. The blog contains details about future meetings and activities, articles, information about Norway, the occasional recipe and much more. We also arrange social meetings at cafes.
