Sommarakademin 2023 / Summer Academy

Summer Academy

Welcome to the Sommarakademi 2023! This year the Sommarakademin 2023 will be held Friday 18.- Sunday 20.8.2023 in Mariehamn, on the Åland Islands.

Sommarakademin is a training weekend, usually at the end of the summer, where all of Region A:s presidents and Deputy Presidents meet up. As you know, we have 21 local chapters in our region, from Porvoo to Turku and to Åland Islands. So, we are expecting to have an amazing training and get-together weekend. JCI Mariehamn has been organizing this weekend for many years now with planning and facilities; the trip to and from the islands, accommodation, food as well as everything practical you can think of. The Regional team takes care of the training content of the weekend.
