Welcome to Helsinki!

On behalf of the Finnish Association of Principals I'm honored to welcome you all to Finland and to our beautiful capital city Helsinki. Days in Helsinki in the beginning of August 2015 will give you both professional and personal experiences. Leading Educational Design as the theme for the next ICP World Convention will guide you to observe, to think familiar issues in a new and innovative way, to discuss with colleagues from all over the world and to meet many Finnish Principals and experts. You are able to follow interesting keynote speakers and to attend workshops.
There will be a lot to see in Helsinki area and it's really easy to travel to other parts of Finland and nearby countries.

The Finnish Association of Principals

On behalf of The International Confederation of Principals I have a great honor to invite You to the 12th World Convention of ICP.

ICP Helsinki will gather together the world´s most interesting speakers and researchers in the field of education.  The Helsinki convention will offer the participants a great opportunity for professional development and collaboration as we expect to host 1,500 principals in Finland.

We would like you to bring your professionalism as part of the convention. In order to become a really successful melting pot of educational thinking, we are eager to have principals from all over the world and every culture. Your participation will be an essential part of the programme.

Our theme “Leading Educational Design” has a strong commitment for the future. The Helsinki convention will be the perfect venue to update one's knowledge about the current state of affairs in education and about the directions in which schools and educational policies are going; what trends prevail and what to expect from the future. What are the new learning or motivational environments like? What are the biggest challenges in the world of education?

We believe that these are some of the core questions for all school leaders around the world. We hope that ICP Helsinki will give you some new paths worth exploring.
