Why did you chvoose HUONE as a venue for your event?
We chose HUONE because we wanted something different from a traditional sit-down conference. We wanted some alternative surroundings that invited to creativity and that could meet the message we had at the conference. That we have to rethink the way we teach children (and adults) – including the surroundings.
What kind of meeting or event did you have and why? Who participated?
We had a conference with the theme “the vision of the world’s best school” because we wanted a conference that addressed the problem of children’s well-being from a more helicopter perspective and with a long-term and sustainable view. The conference was attended by politicians, school leaders, teachers, pedagogues, and supervisors.
Did you include the rooms and surroundings in your event?
Yes, we had deliberately selected several meeting rooms that we could actively use in our conference, so we had a primary room, which was Strand, and several break-out rooms.
