Rotary LXIV EEMA Conference
26 - 28 August 2016 Helsinki, Finland

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is my great pleasure to welcome our Rotarian friends to EEMA2016 Congress in Helsinki 26 - 28 August 2016!

Our main theme is to discuss, from many different aspects, the well-being of students participating in our program. Our keynote speakers are top-level specialists in education, youth psychiatry and Rotary Youth Exchange Program.

Finland is famous for her excellent school system. In our congress we will introduce the Finnish model, which has helped us to turn out wonderful results for years. In the foyer of the congress building you will have a chance to see concrete examples of the type of schools in which we place our exchange students.

"The entire congress will concentrate on the students and their well-being. With the help of this congress we are seeking solutions with which Rotary as an organization could support the students in their growth on the road to independence during their exchange year. "

Finland is a safe, clean and civilized country. Our host families are carefully chosen and screened and the trips we arrange for the students are interesting and carefully organized.

The entire congress will concentrate on the students and their well-being. With the help of this congress we are seeking solutions with which Rotary as an organization could support the students in their growth on the road to independence during their exchange year.
