The 2nd Forum organised by the EC2U Alliance will take place virtually on 19–21 May. It will be hosted by the University of Turku, and will focus on topics including social sustainability, collaboration between universities and cities, and micro-credentials/recognition of students engagement.

Every six months, the Alliance organises the EC2U Forum to gather students, staff, citizens, local and regional authorities to foster open dialogue on pressing issues in society and to share good practices. The Forum in Turku will be free of charge, open to all, and will be organised virtually due to the COVID-19 situation.
