Welcome to The FINNISH
BAHÁ
’Í Summer School 2020!

[Suomenkielisille sivuille tästä: http://www.bahai.fi/koulut]

The Summer School this year is organized as a virtual event due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Nonetheless we are expecting it to be an inspiring event where, in addition to learning and study, it is possible to meet friends, to get to know new people and to enjoy good company!

Participating in the programme

The programme frame below is also your 'entrance ticket' to all the sessions of the Summer School. By clicking your mouse on each programme you will get to the virtual meeting for that particular session. Below, there is also a PDF-version which you can download to your computer or your mobile device; this version, too, has links on which you can click to get to participate in the programme you desire.

Language

Next to each program there is in blue parenthesis either (EN) or (FI); this means that that program is either in ENglish or in FInnish. In each case, however, interpretation to the other language is provided, except during the study workshops (daily at 14:00-15:15) during which the program is only in the language indicated next to it.

Zoom app

We will be using Zoom interface for the event. We strongly recommend the use of a computer or tablet, since a larger screen gives a far better participation experience; however, mobile phones can also be used for this purpose. In order to participate in the Summer School, you need a small Zoom app on your computer or your tablet or your mobile. For a Windows computer, it can be found here: <https://zoom.us/client/latest/ZoomInstaller.exe>; for other operating systems, here: <https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting>; for tablet or mobile you can get the app from the app-store of your device (Android or iPhone).

In case of problems, please call Summer School Committee's representative Partow Izadi, tel. +358 40 5883758.

Here is the PDF version of the Summer School programme (includes the Zoom links).
