The essential part of LIFE2022 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 awesome winter adventures. 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 the event you will learn concrete examples of how to work as co-teachers, how to group the students to work together as well as how to structure students’ collaboration. In LIFE2022 we will also establish our own culture or learning together and thus experience what it means in practice. A special attention will be given to the practices during COVID-19 pandemic in Finland.
