1st Beer POTLA.CH

A Public Debate
< Back

Why connecting with your countrymen matters

March 12, 2022

The first edition of Beer POTLA.CH was a night to remember. The event was organized with the aim of bringing together people and foster a public discussion within our community. The theme of the evening was "Why Meet Countrymen in Switzerland?" and the goal was to discuss diffent ways of meeting new people and cons and pros of having a strong expat community abroad.

At 1pm, beer enthusiasts, volunteers, and those eager to meet the organizers and other attendees arrived and mingled over a glass of good beer. At 3pm, the event officially kicked off with a brief introduction, followed by a lively discussion about the importance of connecting with one's countrymen even when living abroad. We had two beer breaks during the 3 hours long debate.

The attendees shared their experiences and perspectives on the topic and debated among each other. The event provided a platform for attendees to network, share their stories, and forge new connections. The lively and friendly atmosphere made it easy for attendees to open up and have meaningful conversations with one another.

Overall, the first edition of Beer POTLA.CH was a resounding success, and a testament to the importance of connecting with one's countrymen even when living abroad. The event provided a space for attendees to connect, discuss, and reflect, and left a lasting impact on all who attended. We are looking forward to more Beer POTLA.CHs!
