We run several projects, events and competitions, as well as recognize and award citizens of Tampere. The most prestigious of our events are “In Flames” which is a seminar for young students about entrepreneurship and chasing one’s dreams, and the “High Altitude Camp” which connects 10 promising future leaders with local companies to create innovative solutions to real life business cases during a year-long course. We organize the Most Positive Citizen - competition and for the past 24 years have awarded the Employer of the Year.
