LIFE2021Remote is a virtual version of the fifth LIFE Lapland International Forum for Education™. This virtual event still has all the main features of the onsite conference in the Arctic: shadowing Finnish teachers during LIVE virtual school visits, listening to the top Finnish education experts, and of course, meeting the Santa. 

This unique one-day training program offers an exclusive opportunity to visit Finnish primary, secondary, and high schools right by the Arctic Circle, in the city of Rovaniemi, also known as the official hometown of Santa Claus. During the visits, you can not only observe but also interact with the Finnish teachers and ask questions about what you have just seen, or anything that you would like to know about Finnish education or everyday life in Finnish schools.

After the school visits, you can join Educa, the biggest educational event in Finland (19.000 participants in January 2020). Top Finnish education experts are talking about COVID-19, distance education, international co-operation, and lifelong learning, among many other themes.

To get the most out of the event, you will get free access to our online courses about Finnish education, and get familiar with the Finnish education system and principles prior to the visit and keynotes.

For early bird buyers, we will also offer during the holidays a Virtual flight to Rovaniemi and meeting with Santa Claus. The flight is offered by Finnair, the official airline of Santa Claus. IMPORTANT! THIS OPTION IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR REGISTRATIONS MADE BY DECEMBER 22ND!
