LIFE2023 is a new way to dive deeper into the renowned Finnish education system while enjoying the unparalleled beauty of Lapland. The program reflects the collaborative learning culture promoted by our newest national curriculum. You will be job shadowing Finnish teachers and daily life at local schools, interacting with invited speakers as well as with other participants from around the world, and going out for Socratic walks in the snow.

This unique teacher training course is the sixth Lapland International Forum for Education™. LIFE2023 offers an exclusive opportunity to visit Finnish kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, and the University of Lapland‘s Teacher Training School. One day you will even get the chance to job shadow Finnish teachers from the students’ perspective during our Be a Student -lesson simulations: Nature pedagogy, Handcrafts, Home economics, Sport (snowshoeing), and Welfare pedagogy. In addition to school visits, lectures, and workshops, you can participate in social programs, such as the city of Rovaniemi reception and farewell dinner.

The essential part of LIFE2023 takes place right near the Arctic Circle in the city of Rovaniemi, also known as the official hometown of Santa Claus. During the event, you have an opportunity to meet him in person and participate in many other exciting and unique winter adventures.

In addition to the main event in Rovaniemi, you can extend the visit from the beginning and end: Start the journey in our capital city Helsinki (January 27-28) by listening the top Finnish education experts at Educa fair, the largest event for Finland’s education and training sector. Also, on February 3, we organize an optional extra outdoor pedagogies workshop as an AFTERLIFE EXPERIENCE.
