Integration 2020 draws attention to good integration practices and partnership
Different regions and organisations have done a lot of valuable work to promote integration, but it is not often that operators in the field get to meet each other. Because of this, they are not always able to share good practices for promoting integration in the most effective way possible.
Why Integration 2020?
The Integration 2020 event will continue the work started during the first integration event in 2018 and strengthen partnerships between public authorities, the third sector and businesses.
The themes of the event are a receptive and inclusive society, action and participation, health and wellbeing, skills and work, an effective initial stage of integration and multi-sectoral cooperation. We will examine these themes creatively, through best practices, recent studies and partnerships, without forgetting vulnerable groups, the future, political decision-making and communications.
The Integration 2020 event will give participants the chance to:
- hear how integration is currently promoted in Finland and around the world,
- network and find partners, and
- view the presentations of different operators in the field of integration in our virtual exhibition space.
Who is the Integration 2020 event intended for?
The Integration 2020 event is intended for those working in the field of immigrant integration and refugee reception. These include third-sector operators, public authorities, municipal employees and researchers who, in the course of their work, are engaged in immigration, integration and reception and those who promote integration as decision-makers, representatives of minors, teachers, entrepreneurs, employers or friends.
The aim is to hold this event every two years and make it both the main event for integration and the main event of the Integration Partnership Programme. We hope that municipalities in particular will take part in organising future integration events.
