EUROPE DIRECT Kainuu is member of the Europe Direct network in Finland, which in turn is part of a Europe-wide family of centres. The centres make Europe accessible to people on the ground and get them engage in debates on the future of the EU. The network is managed by the European Commission.

You can contact us with questions about the EU policies, programmes and priorities and engage in events on the future of the EU.

We also go to schools, where we make presentations, run discussions about the EU and provide official publications.

All our services are carried out free of charge for the citizens involved.
