The main purpose of community events is to enable LifeX members across apartments to meet and mingle.
As the community is a core foundation for LifeX, we want to use these events and activities to allow people to share interests, make new friends, expand their networks, find people with similar hobbies, and just have fun. The events run continuously throughout the year and vary in size, price and duration.
The rule of thumb is to have four big LifeX sponsored events (for example, Easter celebrations, sports day, cultural excursions, and Christmas dinners) and then various smaller, spontaneous ones in between (like cocktail nights, climbing, picnics and halloween parties). In addition to these, we also highly encourage and welcome members to arrange anything they believe could be interesting and fun for the community - no idea is a stupid idea - and LifeX will be happy to give a helping hand in arranging it.
We use two main platforms for both communicating to members and for posting events:
- Slack (each city has a Slack event channel)
- Meetup (all events are posted here - join the LifeX Meetup group)
Make sure to get on both!
🙋 Do you have a cool activity you would like to organise?
This is awesome! LifeX can help by reimbursing some of the cost of organising community events. You can find more information and a way to submit your event proposal here.
