Attendance at the seminar will be limited to 40 participants because of restrictions on available space. Available places will be filled in chronological order of date of registration.

Registration by email to: juha.rekola@journalistiliitto.fi

We invite all journalist, freelance or salaried, from international and Finnish origins to attend this meeting. The objective of the meeting will be discussion of common professional issues, networking and identifying employment opportunities in Finland.

This will be the first of what we hope to be a series of meetings aimed at introducing different professional journalists to each other. Participants in the seminars will be Finnish, newly arrived international journalists and international journalists who have been resident and working in Finland for some time.

The first meeting will not have a detailed agenda, in the expectation that the participants themselves will set their own programme of topics and issues which they would like to address.

However, we suggest the following topics for the first meeting;

  • Opportunities for networking, collaboration with Finnish and resident international journalists and employment possibilities.

  • To explore possibilities for networking and collaborative work with newly arrived international journalists.

  • To get an introduction and briefing on the international situation in newly arrived international journalists’ countries of origin.

Note: Though the participation is free of charge, the registration is binding. Coffee/tea with sandwiches will be served.
