LIFE 2017 is an exclusive opportunity to visit ordinary Finnish schools. See for yourself how teaching is organized, talk with the local teachers and students, and listen to the top Finnish pedagogical experts, such as Prof. Kirsti Lonka, to get inspired and have new ideas for your daily work as an educational professional. In addition to the seminar and school visits, there are social events such as City Reception and Dinner included in the price.

LIFE 2017 takes place right by the Arctic Circle, in the city of Rovaniemi, which is also the official hometown of Santa Claus. During the forum you will meet him in person and have a chance to participate in many other exotic winter activities.

LIFE 2017 is organized by VisitEDUfinn Ltd. The company is run by professionals with a track record of organizing successfully many conferences and schools visits. Here is a comment from one of our participants:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the experience – it’s the best professional development I’ve ever done. If ever you need someone to accompany the trip or go again just give me a call! Thank you so much for creating the opportunity and for your input.” – David Paisley, Head teacher, Eldersfield Lawn CE Primary School
