There’s something quite romantic about Lausanne underneath a blanket of snow. The white dusting on the tiled rooftops, the cobble-stoned pathways bordered with powder; it’s as if seeing the city with new eyes. While the winter months may seem to drag on, we’ve begun to learn how to pause and appreciate this place, even on those grey days. And it’s much easier to appreciate Lausanne when it showcases such a variety of events each week! Here’s what’s going down this week in and around Lausanne this week:

Tuesday

It’s actually for the NEXT Tuesday, but we’d like to bring attention to an event and organization that we find inspiring and necessary for this day and age: Girls in Tech. They are a global non-profit focused on the engagement, education and empowerment of girls and women who are passionate about technology. Can we get an amen?! And next Tuesday they’re hosting an event at EPFL about the future of mobility and transport. Tickets are under 12 CHF, and the speaker line-up is super impressive. Get tickets here.

The first Tuesday of every month is “Ladies Night” at Pathe Flon–and this Tuesday their offering a welcome aperitif and showing the 3x Golden Globe winning film Green Book.
