Jyväskylä, a city of culture and education

Jyväskylä, the seventh largest city in Finland, is one of the country's five main urban regions. The city, which turns 175 years old next year, currently has over 131,000 residents – and is growing all the time.

The education level of Jyväskylä's residents is high, and the number of those with a higher academic degree is above the national average. The atmosphere in this city of universities and schools is youthful. It's an active city that appeals to people, and there are jobs available for professionals.

Jyväskylä is particularly well known for education. The tradition of education in Finnish, along with the success of its university and other educational institutions, have made Jyväskylä a centre of education. Educational export is also strong at the moment. The local university is one of the most significant actors in Jyväskylä, and it has an extensive impact on the business sector. Internationalism is one of the city's many resources, and students make the city a vibrant place to live.

The City of Jyväskylä keeps its service structures and organisation up to date. We support the comprehensive growth and learning paths of children by combining daycare and basic education in the same organisation. In Jyväskylä, culture is used as a means to promote well-being. The city's cultural scene is lively and fresh, including high-level choir activities, among many other offerings. We also encourage the residents of Jyväskylä to take initiative, live a healthy life and maintain their ability to work. The Athenis Finlandiae event enriches the diverse event offering of Jyväskylä. The event is open for everyone, and it provides a range of interesting activities, among them enjoying a listen to the traditional Harju Ridge evening song in Latin.

I wish you all the best and hope for a successful event!
