Published Categorised as News, News

Today was Come in2 Project – Closing conference at G18 in Helsinki. It was a full day event packed with interesting lectures and insights. 45 people attend IRL and more followed the online stream.

The goal of the project is that through our activities, we will be able to contribute to creating a society in which children and young people who come to Finland are not only integrated but are also included. We want to help ensure that children and young people do not fall between the cracks, that their voices are heard and that their best interests are considered in all sectors and by all bodies. 

To achieve this goal, we have worked with providing competence development, and present research and good methods to all those active in the integration process.
