This networking event gathers young people, businesses, education and decision makers together to discuss the challenges and opportunities for future development in the Barents region. How do young people see their situation in these sparsely populated areas? Is our development-oriented atmosphere giving us the right tools to create new? How can we more strongly support the cooperation between the youth and the businesses? What is North Karelia’s recipe for survival?

First day program includes versatile presentations followed by afternoon workshops in mingled groups and interactive discussions. In the evening participants will have chance to join the Barents Feast reception, hosted by the City of Joensuu. Second day program includes company visits within your chosen theme, we want to show you the best from North Karelia.
