Nordic-Baltic Meeting

Koordinaatti and Föreningen Luckan r.f., are organising the second Nordic-Baltic Meeting in Helsinki 29-31 August 2018. The event is a Nordic-Baltic working group meeting for ERYICA members, youth information and counselling services and coordinating organisations. 

The main purpose of the Nordic-Baltic Meeting is to discuss the current situation of youth information in the countries that will be present at the meeting. We will be sharing information, ideas, best practices and know-how, and brainstorm future cooperation possibilities. Our aim is also to draft a work plan (2018-2019) for Nordic-Baltic networking.

All actors who work in youth information and counseling are welcome to attend the event. Also the actors who are planning to start working with youth information are welcome to participate.

Enrollment has closed.


Changes and updates on the programme are possible.
