Once again, the European Cooperation Day will be celebrated across Europe on several days in September. The Karelia ENPI CBC programme organizes events in Oulu, Kajaani, Joensuu, and Petrozavodsk. The day is dedicated to presenting cross-border cooperation between Finland and Russia.
In some cities there will be an additional event supporting the main event. Below is a preview on the plans for each city.
In Oulu the main event will take place at the Culture Centre Valve on September 20th. The projects involved will present their work in front of Café Minttu. There will be activities for children, coffee, project stands, and a performance at Valvenäyttämö.
In addition to the main event, we will have a stand at the Student Organisation Fair at the University of Oulu on September 10th. There the students can get information on the projects, the European Cooperation Day, and get their own, brand-new ECD badges.
