Opening of the Baltic Sea Day
The Baltic Sea belongs to us all! We will open the Baltic Sea Day with a discussion event on Espa Stage, open for all. The event kicks off with Jan Vapaavuori, Mayor of the City of Helsinki, and the discussions will be hosted by Baba Lybeck. The morning talk will be joined by e.g. Jan Vapaavuori, Mayor; Juha Hurme, author; Tarja Halonen, President; Sophia Jansson, Creative Director and Chairman of the Board of Moomin Characters; the professors Laura Kolbe and Markku Ollikainen, and the Vivace youth choir.
The Baltic Sea Day early bird session is part of the Helsinki Talks discussion event, organised on the Espa Stage from 25 to 27 August. The discussions are open for all, and can be followed on location or at home with a device, as Helsingin Sanomat will stream the conversations live.
The Baltic Sea Day early bird session will take place on 27 August from 8 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. A more detailed programme and schedule will be available later on these pages.
