Kuva Syyään yhesä! -tapahtumasta 2019

The Welcome to Pyhäjoki! Project organises a variety of events for the whole family together with different partners and collaborates with events already established in Pyhäjoki.

The opening event of the project, “Syyään yhesä!” (Let’s eat together!) on 5 September 2019, was a great example of a food culture event. Events involving music, dance, customs and party culture are also being planned along with events that bring together companies offering work and professionals looking for new jobs.

Training events and workshops related to the project will address topics such as acknowledging new member and customer groups as well as themes related to multidimensionality and intercultural communication. There will also be lectures by experts about their experience and workshops related to the basics of Tandem language learning.

The project also enables thematic study trips into nature. The themes listed in the project plan include, for example, the right of public access, berry and mushroom picking, fishing, hunting and outdoor exercise and hiking in winter, but other themes are also possible. Associations in Pyhäjoki and experts of each theme are responsible for the practical arrangement of the study trips.
