Networks

Peer support, tips and national development work

Experts in various methods from all over Finland meet each other and share their experiences and good practices among peers in the national development networks coordinated by Kanuuna. The networks have a central role in developing youth work, based on both expertise stemming from experience and information collected through scientific methods.

Some of the Kanuuna networks have already been established years ago, and others only in the spring of 2018 during the ‘Laatua ja menetelmiä’ (quality and methods) seminar organised by Kanuuna in Tampere. More networks are established as the need arises and when prompted by feedback. The objective is to provide peer arenas to support people in their work and offer access to the development work.
