The first speech karaoke workshop was held in Jyväskylä, the largest city in Central Finland. About 20 local participants – from students to pensioners – took part in the two workshops, which lasted  3 hours each. Many of the contributed speeches were written by the participants themselves. Some of the contributed speeches dealt with local political issues.
