Why you should attend
Be a part of the development
Each event sets out to determine concrete actions to develop Finland and the region. These actions are being followed up on a yearly basis. Past years have resulted in the birth of projects such as the EnergySAMPO-fund and the Vaasa-Umeå bridge.
The event is 100% carbon free. The electricity comes from a combination of sun and wind energy. The cooling is handled by a ground source heat pump. All the drink and food are carbon neutral and sourced from local producers.
We believe that teamwork and the common good is more important than the interests of any one organization. As a region or as a country we should rather be competing against the rest of the world.
We work across language barriers. The programming is from the ground up in three languages.
We believe that each person should be given a fair chance and treated as an equal.
In 2012 the first series of seminars on the future of Ostrobothnia called “NEW NORDIC CENTER” were held. The aim was to develop the region as to also benefit the whole of Finland. In 2018 the event was renamed to Wasa Future Festival, continuing the tradition and mission of its predecessor.
