The 2013 International Metropolis Conference Programme & Social Events

Metropolis schedules will follow the basic format: In the morning, we will have highly distinguished speakers in plenaries giving their input and having discussions with one another and also with the audience. In the afternoon, we will have numerous workshops from a variety of perspectives on the subject of migration and the movement of people.

Social events will hopefully ease the day's brainwork with culture and socializing. In the evenings, we would like to introduce some of the best elements of Tampere to our guests.

Wagtail – migratory bird

The wagtail is the provincial bird of the Tampere Region

Wagtails are small birds with long tails which they wag frequently. Wagtails are slender, often colourful, ground-feeding insectivores of open country in the Old World. They are ground nesters, laying up to six speckled eggs at a time. Among their most conspicuous behaviours is a near constant tail wagging, a trait that has given the birds their common name.
