Sami Youth - Access to Education and the Labour Market
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 9 June 2020
Where: Online: 7:00-7:45 am AKDT, 11:00-11:45 am EDT
Sami language competence is a sought-after skill in the regional labour markets. Sami-related occupations can be found in traditional occupations such as reindeer husbandry and Sami handicrafts, but also in tourism and in creative industries. But are there enough Sami teachers? And how do Sami education institutions meet the labour market opportunities? A new Nordregio report investigates these questions and the results are discussed in a webinar together with Sami youth representatives Juhán Niila Stålka, board member of the youth association Saminuorra, and Arla Magga, the Sami Parliament in Finland, author of a report on cross-border education and the coordinator of an ongoing project on remote Sami language education.
Linnea Löfving from Nordregio together with Lise Smed Olsen from Oxford Research will present the results of the study which was commissioned by The Nordic Thematic Group on Sustainable Rural Development 2017-2020. The report will be available at the group's website as well as sent to all webinar participants middle of June.
A link to the event will be sent to all participants a day before, but registration is needed.
