Eyes on the Horizon exhibition

Espoo has more islands than Hawaii and the whole coastline is in the public’s free use. Nowadays the Waterfront Walkway and the archipelago are beloved recreational destinations and nature is thought by many to be the best thing about Espoo. For thousands of years the sea has provided a living for both coastal and island inhabitants. The Eyes on the Horizon exhibition tells about seaside Espoo from the perspective of changes faced in livelihoods, leisurely pursuits and in nature over the years. The maritime scenery leads visitors to explore marine themes and atmospheres.

The Flagship project School to Work (S2W)

The Flagship project School to Work (S2W) aims to strengthen transnational cooperation between stakeholders in the Baltic Sea Region in the field of education and work in order to prevent early school leaving and develop support for vulnerable groups of students/youth, specifically NEETs, early school leavers and newly arrived refugees. The project will thus contribute to the achievement of relevant targets in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the EU’s overall strategy Europe 2020.
