Thursday 30 June 17:00 – Reuse, Repair, Recycle: the Circular Economy in Helsingborg

Discover Helsingborg’s new House of Resources, tour the globally unique RecoLab facility and find out about the proposed Reuse Shopping Mall
 

We’ll start at the House of Resources in Oceanhamnen, a project that focuses on recycling and circularity. It will be a hub for renovation, repairs, and upcycling, with groceries available to buy and collect in the evening. The House of Resources is part of a three-year EU project Interreg CIRC North Sea Region, a collaboration between several Nordic and northern European countries.

At 17.30 we’ll take a short walk to the showroom at Recolab for a tour and discussion. RecoLab is a world-first water treatment facility, testbed, and exhibition hall. We’ll hear about the facility, its function in Oceanhamnen, and its global significance, then join interior designer and recycler Helena Bergqvist of RepairIt to find out about the study she and Camilla Grundelius of Kantikant have made into the feasibility and desirability of having a Reuse Shopping Mall in Helsingborg. The study was commissioned by the City of Helsingborg and NSR. This is your opportunity to give your input!

Where to meet

Meet at the northeast corner of Magasin 405 (IKEA Market). There is a big white square tent on the landside, with an H22 sign that says Resursens hus /House of Resources. The address is Redaregatan 25, Oceanhamnen, Helsingborg. The site is next to NSR.

Tuesday 14 June 09:00 – Attracting and Retaining International Talent in Helsingborg

How can businesses in North-West Skåne support their international talent? How do we make sure that employers offer the best possible conditions for talent and their families? How can public and private actors collaborate? Why is a support system even necessary?

We invite employers, recruiters, and municipal representatives to a morning of presentations, discussions, and networking at Open22. Your host, Sally Russell of Helsingborg International Connections, will talk about HIC’s work in welcoming and supporting international talents in the Helsingborg area and examine how public and private partnerships can boost talent attraction and retention.

We’ll discuss how initiatives such as HIC create value for employers, while reducing isolation and loneliness, promoting good health and well-being, and building sustainable cities and communities. Our guest speakers will include expats and public and private actors who will shine a light on these essential but often overlooked topics.

This event has been arranged in collaboration with H22 City Expo, Open 22 at Mindpark, and Helsingborg Municipality.

Thursday 3 March 18:00 – Inside and Out

 

Understanding your child’s social and emotional needs

We welcome Dušanka Kojdić and Laura Kolano of The Camino AB, who invite you to a workshop where you will gain valuable information, learn about children’s social and emotional development, and find out why it should be encouraged in every child. Dušanka and Laura are experienced learning support teachers working at the International School of Helsingborg.

Find out more:

“As learning support teachers working in an international environment, we have noticed a greater need for social and emotional support among young children. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and all the consequences that it brought, children are facing many challenges and problems and therefore require more support and help. If we stop for a second and think about all the changes, transitions and difficulties young children were exposed to in the past two years, we will understand better their needs. We as adults, with the full capacity of understanding and with the full set of coping skills, had a hard time adjusting to changes and situations pandemic brought.

We have noticed that students have a hard time understanding their emotions and dealing with them in a constructive way. Many students carry a level of anxiety and worry which creates more challenges in coping with everyday routines and tasks. We see the biggest challenge when it comes to expressing needs verbally, this is where most of the students struggle and require assistance. When feeling overwhelmed (which happens a lot during early development) and without the right strategies, children can manifest behaviours which are not desirable. This is why it is so important to understand a child’s social and emotional development and the complexity of it. If we as adults focus on understanding the actual need behind the behaviour and if we equip young children with strategies and tools which they can use as coping mechanisms, we are ensuring their safe and healthy wellbeing. 

Providing learning opportunities, as well as a safe and creative environment where children can practice and master social and emotional skills, is the best contribution we as educators can provide for them. With that in mind, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) comes as an integral part of early years education. A famous child psychologist Vygotsky said, “What the child can do with assistance today, he/ she will be able to do by herself tomorrow”. As educators, we know that the best thing we can give young children is the knowledge and belief that they can be successful in what they do, and that they are the ones in control of their emotions and actions. 

Our workshops are created based on SEL theory and concept, they are child-centred, play-based, and interactive, designed for children aged 5-9. Our main focus is prevention, which means providing possibilities for children to reach their full potential and discover their strength.  Prevention is the key in early development of a child, therefore our workshops are designed for children aged 5-9. We hope that you will gain valuable information and learn about the social and emotional development of children and why it is important to encourage it with every child.”
