Not an ordinary party in Lund.


Internationen is a unique cultural and integrational event that aimed to bridge social segregation and to create meeting place where both students and non-students could meet and make new friends and contacts. Internationen is organized every year in one of the student nations in Lund.

As far as Lund is famous with its oldest university in Europe and it certainly offers lot´s of events for students.
However, if you are not living a student life in a student city, it is kind of tough to go out, because there are not more than 3 clubs and a few pubs. Of course, you can go either to Malmö, it will take you only 20 minutes to get there, or you can go to Copenhagen. In most of the cases people choice to go to Copenhagen, i like that as well. It is completely different atmosphere and different people…but lets go back to Lund:)

Student nations are the unique part of student life that exist in Lund. There are more than 12 nations in Lund.  

The aim of these nations were to create a meeting place for students that came from specific provinces and share the same backgrounds. Every nation named after specific place of Sweden. Although the nations  preserve their geographic names, students may enroll in any nation they want.

In most cases it does not matter what nation one enrolls in, but different nations offer different activities for interested students.   
In short:

  • Each nation has student housing.
  • Each nation has different activities for students interested in sports, arts, or partying.
  • All activities within the nations are voluntary.    
  • Almost each nation has pub evenings with a following night clubs, and it is organized at least ones per a week.
  • Prices are very low compared to regular establishments in Lund. You can get a lunch for a great price.

The point of telling about student nations is that Internationen is the only one opportunity for non-students/immigrants to visit one of these nations and meet up different people, regardless race, sex, nationality and career or educational background. 

So, this time Internationen is going to be organized @Krischan nation on the 7th of April, at 18:00.

You are always welcome. Изображение




Tomorrow early in the morning we are going to Poland to the city of Lagnisa to take part in 2 days training in the frame of Grundtvig project.

There are 6 of us from Sweden; Filippa, Gustaf, Necco, Ali, Nurzaada and me. We are going to take part in the workshops of trainers from other countries. We have got a chance to meet with participants of Grundtvig project from the countries like Italy, Portugal, Cyprus, Hungary, Turkey, Romania and Poland. I think it’s just a great chance to get to know more about european people.

Gustaf and Necco are going to drive mini buss turn by turn. I have never travelled in mini buss before, and moreover It’s my first trip around Europe in the frame of EVS. So, I feel that this trip to Poland will be full of adventures and fun.

Furthermore we are going to spend one day in Berlin! It makes me amazingly happy:)

All information about Grundtvig project and other staff I will post later.


I am a new EVS volunteer in Sweden, yay!


The first sentence that I want to say before starting my EVS story is that I am unbelievable happy to join a big family of EVS volunteers!
Let the next EVS story start! As well as the proverb says “We are alike, but all are different ” every EVS volunteer is very unique, full of life and energy. With a big desire to devote a whole year for totally new culture and new people.
I am a volunteer and i am not an exception, I am just an ordinary girl from the small, beautiful and warm city of Osh, which situated in The South of Kyrgyzstan. There I was born, grow up, study and enjoy my life. This year I am going to celebrate my 20th birthday in one of amazing, beautiful and interesting city, in Lund, Sweden. It was my dream to be somewhere in Europe, when I am gonna be in my 20th. Also, the fact that I am going to work as an EVS volunteer in Tamam makes me feel myself really excited. I have been to Sweden once before, in 2011 with 5 more girls from “Youth of Osh” where, actually I was volunteering. I can say that these 7 days were not enough for me to enjoy Swedish life and I felt in love with Lund. It was spring time and everything was blooming, even air was flowering. I liked the enigmatic and old buildings with flowers growing on them. I found this city safe, people are open minded and the main thing what i liked is that most of people take care of their health!

I have a very big expectations about this country and my future project. I am extremely interested in working with Tamam and CAG. Participating in a social life of Lund, getting experience of writing and realizing projects, living abroad, get to know culture of Scandinavian countries, new language, to make new friends – does it sounds awesome? To my mind it is that very thing, which I was waiting for.

Moreover, doing Evropean Volunteer Service in Sweden Is one of the best chances for me to feel myself a little bit as a citizen of the world. Being an EVS volunteer is not just a coincidence, because i had many steps to come to this place, and I am happy. In Osh I used to realize social projects about developing debates, volunteering and project in the sphere of journalism. One of my projects was supported by the program of Soros Foundation “Youth Action Fund”.

While I am in Sweden, I want to improve my skills of photographing. I want to check all facts about Swedish culture and people and share with others.

P.S: My name is Aida, my friends call me Aida, and you may also call me Aida
