The International – Vienna For Everyone – is an English-language media network featuring online daily news, magazines, podcasts, events, and a job market that builds a community and sustainable social infrastructures in and for Vienna, lowering the language and network barriers for expats.

Editorial Mission Statement

We are an independent media service offering English-language
local daily news, weekly podcasts, bimonthly events, quarterly magazines, and a job market for expats and international
students to build a community where every person from our target group can find what they are looking for.
Our news is in English to keep The International reader from waiting until the language barrier has
fallen, so they can start loving and connecting to Vienna. Therefore, our media service offers social and
cultural contributions to the integration process. This way, we give a confidence boost to expats and slowly put the bricks towards a conscious community.
