Oslo Welcome Week 2017 – is here to welcome internationals and repatriated Norwegians back to Oslo after summer, no matter how long since you arrived first time. Embrace that you are more than just Norwegian. Give your international self to create this cosmopolitan city that Oslo has become. OWW’17 is a pilot, preparing for OIW’18. We hope to contribute to Oslo becoming an even warmer city for internationals moving here. By internationals, for internationals. OWW is organized by International House – where many events are also taking place – C U @ Oscarsgate 27, right behind the royal palace.
