OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES with Toby Cowern
With (easy) access to nature and a large selling point of moving to the North of Sweden being focused on healthy work/life balance, EFA plans to organise and deliver a number of nature access events, representative of the relative seasons.
These activities start this summer with the first event being ‘Stress Reduction and Nature’.
This two hour workshop will provide clear and detailed guidance in a practical, engaging, fun filled form into easy but powerful ways to integrate positive, nature engagement into your daily and weekly lifestyle routines.
The event is delivered on partnership with Hello Nature AB, who work with an interesting concept known as the 4’i’s in their activity delivery. That all events delivered should provide attends the opportunity to be:
WELCOME TO A DAY IN BURTRÄSK!
There is no one too old to have fun… So off the couch and come out to socialise!
6th of June: National Day – Nordanå
Lions Club Skellefteå will arrange as every year the national day at Nordanå in association with Skellefteå Kommun.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could volunteer to any of these activities:
1. Carnival (playing an instrument, show your traditional costume or contribute with something typical for such event).
2. Help us with the filling and sales of the sandwich (a small amount of your expense is reimbursed).

GUIDED TOUR IN ENGLISH – SARA KULTURHUS!

Topic: International competencies
With all the investments and establishments that take place in Skellefteå and the northern region, it will not be enough to recruit locally and nationally, we will need to turn to Europe and the rest of the world. How do we take advantage of international competence and how do we attract people to discover Skellefteå? We will address this hyper-current topic at the next morning meeting on May 6 at Scandic in Skellefteå.
