Kuopio Stories

A new feature on Kuopio website, Kuopio Stories gives a voice to the immigrants living in Kuopio. We believe that in order to bring different people together and to strengthen our society we need to hear one another´s stories.

Kuopio is an international city and attracts talent from all parts of the World. Reasons that bring individuals to Kuopio vary but everyone has a story to tell. Kuopio Stories serves to give residents of Kuopio an opportunity to learn more of backgrounds of their international neighbours.

In addition, Kuopio Stories is meant to expand the reach of the story of Kuopio to be heard far and wide, as people who have made Kuopio their home share their experiences.
