100 years of Finland´s independence - Together!

ESN Finland news - Sun, 26/11/2017 - 23:38

The year 2017 marks Finland’s 100th anniversary as an independent state. It is an important year for Finland full of events created through joint efforts. The anniversary year generates actions, experiences and an extensive programme of events. It is seen and heard across the country throughout 2017. Through these actions, we reflect on the past 100 years of Finland’s independence, assess its present and explore its future. 

ESN Finland is celebrating the Centenary of Finland's independence by collecting #100reasons to come on exchange studies to Finland!

These reasons are intended to promote Finnish education and culture, and are posted on ESN Finland's Facebook page during a period of 100 days every day from 28th of August till the Independence Day - 6th of December. You can find all of the reasons in our Facebook album.

Reasons are collected from former and current exchange students, international students, as well as anyone interested in telling more about Finnish culture! Let's celebrate #Finland100 together!

“I heard the unfinished story of a Finnish woman...”

ESN Finland blog - Sat, 21/10/2017 - 15:43

A blog post by Petra Hannus, National Training Coordinator of ESN Finland and President of ESN Vaasa.

"As a newbie ESNer, I didn’t know anything about Eduk8. It took until NP Otaniemi (autumn 2015), when Lucas Opperman and Stanislav Staněk held a presentation plus that I also approached them with my questions, that I finally understood it better. Non-formal education, learning from each other, developing soft skills, and better understanding ourselves, some key words that really spoke to me."

A blog post by Marjut Jalkanen, former ESN Jyväskylä and ESN Finland board member, Eduk8er and the Community Manager of the international Eduk8 team.

"I can point out three really good decisions that I have made in my life: 1) joining ESN, 2) joining ESN for the second time, 3) applying for a spot in Eduk8 Starter. I don’t know which one of them was the best."
