Afternoon gathering of the Let’s Work Together-action group

DATE: Tuesday 26.4., at 13-15

VENUE: Virta-building, Edu´s Café at 3rd floor, Åkerlundinkatu 5

The action group Let’s Work Together in School of Education aims at supporting asylum seekers in Pirkanmaa region to participate in Finnish society. This has mainly taken place through integration of children, families and adults in a few courses and in voluntary activities organized by teachers and students of EDU. This has required collaboration between many other actors involved in support activities, such as coordinators in Finnish Red Cross and City of Tampere, staffs in reception centres and in adult and vocational institutes.

The afternoon gathering is intended to share experiences from ongoing activities, to discuss on their meaning and functions for individuals and organizations involved, and to suggest ways to move forward. The purpose of gathering is also to learn to know each other in cosy atmosphere.

More about the programme will follow closer to the event on University of Tampere and EDU website and through emails.
