Allianssi Cruise 2018 will also have programme in English (, enabling the European partner organisations to learn more about the Finnish youth work, to compare European realities, share and transfer good practices, discuss experiences and network with European peers. The cruise also offers a possibility to deepen co-operation between partners and develop new projects ideas.

The English programme will include updates on current European processes in the youth field.
