The second Helsinki Education Week will be held 4–8 November 2019. The week’s series of events will highlight the work carried out in Helsinki daycare centres, schools and other educational institutions. Last year’s Helsinki Education Week comprised more than 120 learning events held throughout the city. A large part of the programme is organized with international education experts and innovators.
“We’re delighted that we will again be able to present our pedagogical expertise to a larger and an international audience this year. We’re very proud of our education professionals and the work carried out in our educational institutions,” says Liisa Pohjolainen, Executive Director of the City of Helsinki Education Division.
Helsinki Education Week offers content to learners of all ages and to everybody interested in learning and the development of learning. In addition to international education experts, the target groups include teachers in Finland and particularly teachers, learners and parents in Helsinki.
