It is mind broadening to understand how global issues have an impact in our lives here in South Ostrobothnia. The Europe Direct South Ostrobothnia explains how European Union affects our region. 

We give you information about e.g. EU-funded projects and funding opportunities as well as international events in our region.

What can we offer you?

You can contact us when you have questions about EU’s policies, political priorities, funding programmes and your rights in the EU. We will answer your questions as soon as possible. You are also warmly welcome to join our events concerning the future of the EU and other current EU topics.

We also visit local schools where we give presentations. In addition, we organise discussions about the EU and distribute official publications and brochures to our region’s actors. All our services are carried out free of charge for the citizens. 

Please note that we cannot offer legal advice or interpret EU legislation. However, we can refer you to other EU services which are responsible for solving specific types of problems. 

You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and subscribe to our newsletter. Please note that on our social media channels and in our newsletters we provide information only in Finnish.
