In the discussion, you will hear thoughts on the topic by Jussi Herlin, Vice Chair of the Board at KONE, Kai Kanto, Student, Annika Koljonen, Chairperson at Oikismentorointiohjelma ry, Veronica Salovaara, Doctor of Social Sciences and Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Helsinki, and Ida Viitamäki, Senior Associate at Hannes Snellman. Social Psychologist (M.Soc.Sc.) Priska Niemi-Sampan will also share her views by video during the discussion. The discussion will be moderated by Journalist Kirsi Alm-Siira.

The discussion digs into the question of how youths from different social backgrounds could be helped and encouraged to apply to universities and higher education, particularly in professions that are often passed on from one generation to the next, and what kind of an effect on the diversity of the Finnish working life this will have now and in the future.

SuomiAreena is the largest social discussion event in Finland during the summer. SuomiAreena will be held in Pori on 11-15 July 2022. SuomiAreena is part of the International Democracy Festivals Association, established by several democracy festivals from Europe and the Nordic and Baltic regions.
