EU – uhka vai mahdollisuus – EU – threat or possibility? What does the European Union offer students and young people in general? Is EU able to take new steps in initiatives benefitting students? This event aims to promote discussion on young people’s views on European co-operation, internationalisation and education related issues that should be tackled on an international field.
To answer these questions we have invited speakers from a wide range of different professions (see the programme below). The event is held in Sokos Hotel Presidentti and a complimentary lunch is served.
The event is free of charge and open to everyone – but registration is required and we can only take max. 50 participants. Deadline for registrations is Tuesday 21st November. Link for registration: https://goo.gl/forms/rXOkIjIdYd69pynz2

The event is organised by Sosialidemokraattiset Opiskelijat – SONK ry (Social Democratic Students in Finland) in cooperation with Työväen Sivistysliitto TSL and Eurooppatiedotus (Europe Information).
