LIFE2021 takes place right by the Arctic Circle, in the city of Rovaniemi, also known as the official hometown of Santa Claus.

This time the program dates are March 14-20, which is an excellent time to visit Lapland. There is still a full winter with tons of snow but more daylight and the temperatures, while below zero, don’t reach extreme cold which might occur between December and February. The main venue for event is Scandic Pohjanhovi.

Theme ‘Learning and teaching together’ reflects the culture of learning promoted by the newest Finnish national curriculum. During the conference you will learn concrete examples of how to work as co-teachers, how to group the students to work together, what kind of means there are to support students’ with special needs in multiprofessional co-operation as well as how to structure students’ collaboration. In the seminar we will also establish our own culture or learning together and thus experience what it means in practice.
