NordMatch 2017 brings together professionals, students and volunteers from the Nordic and Baltic countries to share and enrich ideas. This year our overall theme is “Together for inclusion”, looking into ideas that promote the social inclusion of youth in cross-sector collaboration between the culture and creative sectors, sports and outdoor organisations and youth organisations.

A jury consisting of professionals and young people will choose one case from each country to be presented.
