This is an Open Space Technology learning exchange. Here people share experiences and knowledge in the spirit of Open Space Technology. Beside OS small group discussions there will also be room for experimenting, testing and developing various parts of OST. Here you can try out new ideas or generate new wisdom together with your peers. This is a place to meet new and old friends among the Open Space tribe. NOSonOS is for everybody interested in using and understanding OST and contributing to the on-going development of OST and the OS-tribe in Northern Europe.
Scandinavian Open Space on Open Space has become a tradition. Year 2011 9th Scandinavian OSonOS was held in Stockholm thanks to Ulrika Eklund and Pernilla Luttropp. During the meeting a decision was made to organize 2012 a Nordic meeting instead of the traditional Scandinavian meeting. The idea is to invite our Finnish scholars, our Baltic and other Nordic connected colleagues to be part of this spectacularly powerful and splendiferous tradition.
Pre and post NOSonOS program and accommodation is available. For all co-inviters and other early arrivers there will be at the venue on Thursday a get-together around the fireplace with sauna and evening snack.
Post conference accommodation and program will be available for late leaving participants. There will be on Thursday a get-together "Open House" crayfish party at host Tarpila's beach house close by at lake Särkijärvi couple kilometers from Kiviranta.
If people have still energy after the NOSonOS post conference program there might be get-together with members of Finnish Association of Facilitators. Perhaps a possibility to experience a different type of Open Space on a uninhabited nature treasure Island in front of Kiviranta.
Our venue Villa Kirivanta is at the waterfront of Lake Pyhäjärvi. From the beach sauna and all OS rooms we have views over lake Pyhäjärvi and the worlds largest delta ridge on the opposite shore.
The venue is 5 km from Tampere airport and 10 km from downtown Tampere. SAS, Blue1, Ryanair, Finnair, Flybe and Airbaltic operate frequently from the Baltic Sea Region to Tampere-Pirkkala airport.
Very affordable accommodation is available on site. There are romantic old style accommodation in the idyllic 20s villa or modern rooms in the main building.

You are also very welcome to spread the good word about our gathering in Tampere, Finland.
