Important update! September 6th, 2019 LIFE™ was chosen as one of the winners in Authentic Finnish Educational Travel Product -contest!


LIFE is soon here again! This will be the 4th consecutive year VisitEDUfinn and the University of Lapland organize this unique event. LIFE2020 offers an exclusive opportunity to 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.


The theme for this year is digital literacies across the life span. LIFE2020 also provides a popular Playful Learning Workshop inviting educators for creative and playful activities. There is also a daily Playful Learning School Camp for children in the exotic Finnish Lapland. Therefore, also kids are warmly welcome to join the event.


“This visit is part of our efforts to learn from the best in the world when it comes to education”Kirsty Williams, Wales


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.

LIFE2020 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 fun winter activities, such as snowmobile ride, caress reindeer and if you are lucky, may be some northern lights will appear in the sky.

If you took part in the previous LIFE events, we warmly welcome you to join us again. Based on the feedback, we have added some inspiring discussion and reflection to our program, expanded the variation of school visits, 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!
