You said Resoptimist?

You love your city and you’re onto #strasbourgmonamour in a flash? You like to spread the word about Strasbourg and all it offers – its values, its quality-of-life, its parks, its shops, its diversity and all its many attractions? Are you ready to recommend Strasbourg to future inhabitants, such as entrepreneurs, business people, students, talents, investors and creators? You’d like to use your job-skills, your expertise and your passion and share your intimate knowledge and vision of the city?

Bingo! Join the Resoptimist community with Strasbourg Europtimist!

The Resoptimist network is based on how real people experience the city and is one of the many tools used by Strasbourg Europtimist to boost the attractiveness of the city and its region, to help it go further, higher and stronger. The network is run by the Team Europtimist (the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg attractiveness centre) and is made up of a community of the city’s inhabitants, committed to raising its profile and influence. These are people who are ready to share all kinds of useful information and advice with anybody who wants to know more about the city.

Resoptimist is an experiment.

The network is driven by the involvement and motivation of each of its members. Its operation is ever-changing and loosely organised. It’s completely free to join and its aims are purely constructive and non-commercial.
