MONTHLY NEWS & UPDATES
Greetings!
This week's biggest happening is of course Sweden's advancement to the World Cup quarterfinals. Hopefully the confusion about Sweden and Switzerland is all cleared up by now. Embassy of Sweden in the US helped explain the difference by this funny post. SACC-Georgia will host a breakfast viewing party at Fado's in Buckhead on Saturday July 7th at 10 am. Come and cheer for Sweden with us!


Sincerely,

Sara Persson
SACC-GA Executive Director

Almedalsveckan celebrates 50 years

The world's largest open venue for democratic meetings is right now taking place in Visby, Gotland in Sweden.

Almedalsveckan takes place in the beginning of July and attracts 40,000 visitors yearly.

Every parliamentary political party has one day each for disposal, making this political venue an eight-day long festival.

This year, SACC-USA are participating in Almedalen in cooperation with AmCham Sweden! SACC President Johan Marcus will give the opening remarks for “Open For Business: Swedish Investment in the U.S”.
American Young Professionals to Sweden
SACC-USA has been recognized by the Swedish Migration Agency as an educational exchange organization that can facilitate applications for the Swedish work permit for training up to 18 months . It differs from a regular work permit in that the training position does not need to be posted in the EU nor is an approval from a labor union required. The application process is uncomplicated and the Swedish permit for training is issued in a matter of weeks.
