From a schoolchild to a CEO

Atria is again actively participating in the Me & MyCity project for 2016–2019. Me & MyCity is a business learning environment for Year 6 and Year 9 pupils that enables the participants to learn about society, the economy, working life and enterprise. It was named the winner of the 2014 World Innovation Summit for Education. Me & MyCity enables pupils to adopt the role of an adult for a day. In the process, they learn how society and business work. The purpose is to illustrate where they need the knowledge and skills they learn at school.

Atria participates by running a restaurant that employs an enthusiastic CEO and a happy group of waiters.

The Me & MyCity learning environment for Year 6 students is located in Vaasa from 2016 to 2019. Each year, a total of 5,000 students visit the facility with their teachers.
