Wellbeing International Week 2024

Let’s get together and celebrate 10 Years of Wellbeing International Week!

Join us for the 10th anniversary of the Wellbeing International Week at Häme University of Applied Sciences, HAMK, in Hämeenlinna, Finland! This week-long event is a unique opportunity for lecturers and students from around the world to come together and share their expertise on topics related to nursing, social care, and early education. The week has its roots in the first summer school organized by the Degree Programme in Crafts and Recreation in 2006. In 2013, the degree programmes in nursing and social services joined in and the event was renamed Wellbeing International Week. With the long successful history behind us, we are now focusing on the years to come.

In 2024, the theme of the week is Sustainable Future Makers, and we are looking for visiting lecturers who are passionate about helping to create a more sustainable and equitable future for all.

 Join us for a week of learning, networking, and fun!
