In Europe Forum Turku, people from different areas of life get to meet each other: decision-making politicians, non-governmental organisations, economic life, labour market organisations, specialists, and citizens.

Seminars, panel discussions, question times, and civil dialogue will provide a base for constructive dialogue about Europe and the meaning and development of the European Union.

The role of Finland in Europe will be discussed by, for example, Vice President of the European Commission Jyrki Katainen; Vice-President of the European Investment Bank (EIB) Alexander Stubb; Governor of the Bank of Finland Olli Rehn; Finland’s Permanent Representative to the European Union, Ambassador Marja Rislakki; Permanent Secretary in the Ministry for Foreign Affairs Matti Anttonen, and CEO of Finland Chamber of Commerce Juho Romakkaniemi. Top influencers from all parties will also be joining, as well as representatives of trade unions and other lobbying organisations, and almost all MEPs for Finland.

Please note that the majority of the seminars and panels will be held in Finnish - and a few of them in Swedish or English. Please see the parentheses at the end of the programme titles for language info.
