Coming to the Nordics

Podcast series celebrating migrants success stories and challenges in Sweden, Denmark and Norway

"Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories can be used to empower and to humanise.Chimamanda Adichie

The Nordic countries usually sit on the top rankings of innovation, sustainable life styles, social wellfare, climate resposnsibility, gender equality, quality of life in general. Many aspire to move to Scandinavia to enjoy the proclaimed luxuries of life which this region is offering to its citizens. However, it is a journey that is not only sweet. It has its bitter side as well.   

In this podcast series, we share stories of migrants who came to the Nordic region namely Sweden, Denmark and Norway whether because of war or following a partner or persuing the "Nordic Dream" or... or... or...

We invite you to take a mindful walk while listening to these migrants' stories about their journey, who they are today, what they like or dislike in the Nordics, advices they have from their own experience to those planning to settle or recently settled in the Nordics, what they miss from their home country, cultural differences, favourite food, etc.
