LIFE2018

Lapland International Forum for Education

January 16-20, 2018
Rovaniemi, Finland

Learn from the famous Finnish education, see how everyday life works in Finnish schools, talk with the local teachers and students, and listen to the top Finnish education experts, such as Linda Liukas, to gain new ideas to support your daily work.

This unique event, organized by VisitEDUfinn in co-operation with the University of Lapland, offers an exclusive opportunity to visit ordinary Finnish primary schools and kindergartens. This year, you have a unique opportunity to visit a vocational college and brand-new Ounasrinne School, which is a trendsetter for a new kind of community building, including wide range of facilities such a school, a library, a youth club, and a health centre.

In addition to school visits, you may take part in variety of social events, such as seminars and workshops, and city of Rovaniemi reception and dinner, which are all included in the fee. 

LIFE 2018 takes place right by the Arctic Circle, in the city of Rovaniemi, also known as the official hometown of Santa Claus. During the event, you have an opportunity to meet him in person and participate in many other exotic winter activities.

If you took part in the previous forum, LIFE2017, we warmly welcome you to join us again. Based on the feedback, we have extended the forum by a day, added inspiring discussion and reflection to our program, expanded the variation of school visit, and of course invited new keynote speakers. 

There are limited number of places available, so book now to secure your participation.

See you in Rovaniemi!
