What is ESEE?
The ESEE is a biennial event that is organized in rotation by European countries for
training and research in the purpose of communication for agricultural and rural extension.
During these passed years we,  the Extension Educators have met all around Europe.
The issue, "train trainers to train" is the same but the world around has changed.
We need food, and the farmers are still providing the material for safety food as well as they are most
responsible of security of  food. We, the extension educators are finding the innovations
for new and less time consuming and easier work for agriculture.
The first seminar was organized 40 years ago.  This jubileum seminar is hosting prof Pauli Juuti in cooperation of Institute JTO Management School in Nexthotel Aavaranta congress hotel. http://www.jto.fi/ ,
 and  accomodation <www.nexthotel.fi>

This year the 20th ESEE starts on Tuesday 30th August and finishes on Saturday 3rd September in it's birth country Finland.
Particiapnts are expected to start voluntarily a pro seminar Study Tour to Estonia starting  Monday 29th August in Tallinn Estonia. The Estonian Ministry of Agriculture organize the Study tour. See the information!

The mainpurpose of this seminar traditionally is to share the ideas and practices of the
participants on participatory approach to agricultural extension works. As usual this year
we'll see and listen  the best practice in extension between public and private extension
services around the world starting from Europe.We have the possibilities to discuss and
argue and to adopt them in other countries. And to meet good friends during years.
We pack the best new ideas from ESEE to our own countries.
