You can't cancel your enrolment online for the courses that were supposed to start during the suspension. When the course has been rescheduled, you will be the first to know about it and you can then cancel your enrolment if the time doesn't suit you. If you don't want to know about the rescheduled course, you can cancel your enrolment by sending mail to our Customer Service ( email@example.com).
Justification for the suspension of the courses
- the courses are mainly not degree based and are more recreational
- the students include senior citizens and also other persons with a delicate health condition for whom the coronavirus could be critical
- the courses are carried out not only in our own premises but also in classrooms the owners of which have already restricted their use
- the Finnish government and the Finnish institute for health and welfare have appealed in their briefings that participation in group activities should not be carried out due to the coronavirus
Customers will be notified of any course-specific special arrangements, such as distance learning. The education centres will later inform customers about the effect of the cancellations on the course fees already paid.

It is the aim of the project to create a common understanding for ecosocial education in the everyday life of adult education centres, how it is seen in the daily work as well as to enhance the knowledge of its personnel concerning sustainable development.
The topic is most current, as 62% of the Finns consider the climate change as a real and extremely serious threat, which needs to be prevented without delay and which needs to be tackled with every means (Finnish Energy 2018). Stopping of the climate change is also one of the Agenda 2030 objectives in the UN programme for sustainable development. Agenda 2030 includes 17 global objectives for sustainable development, which are to be reached latest by 2030. Espoo is one of the forerunners in the Agenda 2030 programme.
Knowledge of the ecosocial education enables the personnel a vast perspective of sustainable development. The personnel may better highlight sustainable development, observe it in their own work and course planning. Our work communities build a sustainable future together.
