In 2008 we started with our mission bringing together the five nations of Barents. This year, the 9th edition of Barents Reunion will be held in HaparandaTornio on the 24-25 of May 2016. 

With Barents Reunion, its organizers IKEA, and the cities of Haparanda (Sweden) and Tornio (Finland) want to inspire the youth of Barents to see the endless opportunities their home region offers. Therefore, we gather young and more experienced entrepreneurs together with young visionaries to HaparandaTornio once every year. We want to give them opportunities to exchange ideas with current decision-makers and experts while listening to exciting success stories from Barents and beyond.

We are looking forward seeing you at the Barents Reunion Convention!

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: ELAINE EKSVÄRD

According to Elaine, communication is like a muscle, which means that we can also train it just like other muscles.

Elaine is Sweden’s most-wanted consultant and lecturer as far as rhetoric is concerned. She acted as SVT’s rhetoric expert for the presidential election in USA in 2008 as well as for the parliamentary elections in Sweden in 2010 and 2014. To help people practice their communication skills, she founded rhetoric firm “Snacka Snyggt”, together with her husband. The name is also the title of one of her books.
