NSR2021 will be a virtual event - free for all Nordic lion and leo members!

With the decisions from NSR Council Chairperson Board and NSR Operating Committee in early October, the NSR2021 has been transformed to the virtual event. Currently, detailed replanning is in progress, and more updates will provided as soon as possible.

All paid registrations will be refunded. We will contact each registrant personally to agree refund procedure.

For the virtual event, the host committee targets to provide as much as possible from the originally planned event program. At least Key note speaker on theme, theme workshop and lions workshops, and of course NSR Council meeting.

Together with the MD 107 CC Matti, I have a great pleasure to invite You to the NSR 2021 meeting in Helsinki, Finland. After a very exceptional period of time, it is heartwarming to meet face-to-face and spend quality time together by discussing – among other things - how we Nordic Lions can best serve the needs of our local communities in the aftermath of COVID-19. The host committee has worked hard to create an event that not only gives You fruit of thought but also moments of joy and laughter. Looking forward to seeing You all in January 2021!

As Chairperson of The Nordic Co-operating Council Operating Committee (NSR-OC), I also have the pleasure to welcome you all from the Nordic countries and other Lions countries. We have strived to find a balance in contents, price, and location, which we hope you all agree on. We look forward toseeing you all in Finland.

Antti Forsell

Imagine a glimmer of the summer sun on our clean waters or crispy twinkle of the pure white snow in winter. All of us in the Nordic countries have taken this as granted but we must work for it to ensure the same enjoyment of fresh air and clean nature in future. Therefore, we have selected a theme of “Lion Roars On Nature & Sustainable Development” for the NSR2021 event.
Our organizing team is already excited to offer you a special weekend full of interesting program among Nordic lion friends in the heart of Helsinki.
Welcome to Finland!
