The event welcomes new residents of Jyväskylä, especially those who have recently moved from abroad, but also other Jyväskylä residents. During the event you can get acquainted with the services of the City of Jyväskylä, and get information about the services in English and Finnish or with the help of an immigrant advisor in your own language. For example, you can get a library card at the Library stand. There are also guided activities for children.
“The purpose of the event is to make the services familiar to those who have moved to Jyväskylä from abroad,” says Elina Hienola, Service Supervisor, City of Jyväskylä Integration Services.
