  We will present Norway, the land of the midnight sun, the Northern lights and an amazing nature with sea, mountains and fiords. There will also be a taste of Norwegian food, culture and history.
Norway is situated in Northern Europe and on the western part of the Scandinavian Peninsula bordering Sweden, Finland and Russia and with an extensive coastline facing the North Atlantic and the Barents Sea. Norway has become one of the richest countries in the world with vast oil, gas, fish and hydro power resources. Norway is a constitutional monachy with 5.5 million population and plenty space for everyone, 385,000 sq kms, compared to Austria's 84,000 sq kms.

The UNWG Career Guide Book
 
  This Guide Book is intended to provide practical information on employment in Vienna for spouses of employees of the Vienna-based UN organizations, permanent missions and embassies. It has been prepared by members of the United Nations Women’s Guild using their experiences and knowledge of living and/or working in Vienna. Official sources have been used wherever possible throughout this Guide Book and every attempt has been made to ensure that the information is accurate, clear, covering most aspects of employment law in Austria as of the revision date of November, 2011. Click >>here for a copy in PDF.  
     
 
     
 
Finding Help in Vienna
 
 
This resource book is compiled by the UNWG’s Family Status Committee for our members to obtain help during difficult times. The current edition has been updated and expanded based on "Crisis in Vienna" first published in 1997 by the International Women's Council and the UNWG. The current edition includes a new section on schools and kindergarten.  We believe that a woman is better to help herself when armed with the knowledge of her options and alternatives.  UNWG members may access “Finding Help in Vienna” in PDF >>here.  User name and password required.  Please contact the UNWG office for details.
