Alandica Culture & Congress Centre opens 04-05 April

alandica_broschyr_finam

A living canvas - maritime views, fresh ideas Alandica is a new purpose-built facility for all sorts of events, both large and small.

Alandica's designers, the Danish architects Kjaer & Richter, were inspired by Åland's unique maritime nature. Named "Three Islands", its airy and harmonious Scandinavian structure consists of three island-like buildings joined together by a glass-partitioned lobby.

Alandica's unique setting vibrates throughout the building. The surrounding magnificent maritime landscape
stimulates ideas, while spacious facilities, modern technology and professional service respond to the most exacting needs. See http://www.kultur.ax/alandica.htm

"Islands give Finns treaty headache" from BBC

Åland Isles in the news again!

By Laurence Peter, BBC News (open link to bbc.co.uk for full article)

_44959558_finland_aland_0808A tiny autonomous archipelago off Finland could soon add to the EU's Lisbon Treaty woes.

The Aland Islands, which lie between Sweden and Finland, have yet to vote on the EU's reform treaty - and a No would further undermine its legal credibility. Irish voters rejected the treaty in June.

Under the act of autonomy with Finland, the islands - home to just 27,000 people - have the right to vote separately on EU treaties.

The Finnish parliament has already ratified the Lisbon Treaty, but now it is the turn of the 30-member Aland assembly.

"Finnish islands cause headache for EU Treaty approval"

flying the land flagIt is that time of the year again! Åland is in the news, fighting for the rights peripheral islands. In an article in the EU Observer is the following story: (EU Observer)

"LISBETH KIRK Today @ 09:24 CET

The Finnish autonomous Aland Islands are causing headaches for the Finnish government by demanding certain concessions from Helsinki in return for ratifying the EU's Lisbon Treaty.

The local government in the capital Mariehamn has said it will ratify the bloc's latest institutional rule book only if it gets the nod for four demands, with the vote in the Aland 30-member strong parliament expected in the autumn.

The minister responsible for the islands, former MEP Astrid Thors, visited Aland on Monday (11 August) but only offered some good news on one of the demands - Aland will get some sort of speaking rights within the EU.

B7 Games: Letter from the Organiser

Dear All,
 
I am now back in the office after some hectic days on the nothern part of the island. The B7 Games have been a success Tongue out, I have to say, with decent coverage in the local/regional papers (Link1 and Link2 to Swedish news sites) and radio and although the weather godsCool fought over what we deserved, I think the ones on our side won. We had a little bit of rain here and there but considering the horrible weather in the beginning of last week we were lucky when it mattered.
 
After Bornholms drop outSurprised, we were approximately 300 youngsters with leaders/coaches, who had a good time during the three days the games lasted. When my husband turned off the disco music on the Friday night, the bare chested youngsters standing on the tables in the circus tent we had organised for extra curricular activities shouted: "is it finished already?", which gives an indication that they were pleased as well.
 
So I will thank all of you who were here, and/or if you have contact with other leaders and coaches please send my thanks to them. Most youngsters were at their best behaviourWink. You could all be proud of them!
 
Best regards
Susanne Bredesjö Budge
Exhausted but pleased
