NordMatch 2017: Together for Inclusion 26–27/10/2017

at Arcada, Jan-Magnus Janssonin aukio 1, Helsinki, Finland

The younger generations in Europe are stepping into adulthood in a situation where career and working life prospects are very low. How can we ensure a meaningful existence for our youth in a situation where globalisation, digitalisation, and robotisation are changing our working life in a fundamental way? Which tools do young people need to be better equipped for the changing demands of working life – and for life in general? What is the role of the civil society – the culture, sports and youth sectors in particular – in empowering our young? How do we bring about positive change?

NordMatch 2017 brings together people from the Nordic and Baltic countries to share and enrich ideas. This year our overall theme is “Together for inclusion”, looking into ideas that promote the social inclusion of youth in cross-sector collaboration between the culture and creative sectors, sports and outdoor organisations and youth organisations.

When? October 26–27, 2017
Where? Arcada, Jan-Magnus Janssonin aukio 1, Helsinki, Finland
