Welcome Weeks is a series of events serving as a platform for dialog, information, and networking between all actors sharing the aim of a genuinely international region; the internationals, locals, city officials, service providers, higher education institutions, employers and many others.<br /> Targeting the more than 115.000 internationals in the region, consisting generally of 80.000 international professionals, spouses and families, the 14.000 students and the 3.000 international staff at higher education institutions, as well as other groups, Helsinki Region Welcome Weeks invites all to become active participants in the region's development into a competitive and attractive place to live.
