About the conference

 

Families want a healthy environment for their children to thrive and develop their own wings. This year, we celebrate the 30 years of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. For the occasion and with Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-Being) in mind, in Helsinki on 3-4th October 2019 under the Finnish Presidency of the EU, COFACE Families Europe and Vaestoliitto (the Family Federation of Finland) will host a gathering of family professionals on the topic of shaping a healthy environment fit for children. This is an open conference, and we are aiming to gather between 80-100 key stakeholders from Finland and Europe.

This meetup will start with a Spotlight on Finland on 3rd October, in Vaestoliitto premises, taking a look at the work to compile evidence-based approaches to supporting families, followed by a welcome reception hosted by the Mayor of Helsinki.

Then on 4th October, there will be two formats for learning and connecting people: Open Spaces and Networking Hotspots, at the hotel Scandic Park. The Open Spaces will be led by one speaker taking a specific practice as a starting point for discussions, innovation and exchanges with participants from other countries. The Networking Hotspots will be open to all participants to hear about a wide variety of projects (from practice to research) on the topic of child health and well-being during the lunchbreak.

For more information about the conference, see the COFACE website

 

Practical information 

 

 -  From the airport to the hotel: There are multiple transport connections operating from Helsinki city center to Helsinki Airport.
