All in all the project was interesting and for us, who are involved in regional organisations, a challenging endeavour. We encountered numerous new things, which meant that we would have appreciated moral support in this small project. Nevertheless, regionally speaking, it was great to be involved.
We Finnish gals from Perugia are going to Rome to see the Colosseum being lit up in blue and white!!
I have a marketing ban on my phone to make sure that I don’t make any impulse purchases, but as soon as I received the text, I bought a #Finland100 toilet brush, though the old one would do.
What happened to a good debate? It’s increasingly rare to see trust in democracy in a political debate. It’s easy to notice the increasing polarisation of opinions, but more difficult to find a genuine dialogue.
Journalist Olav S. Melin, Finland 100 commentary on 30 March 2017
Great display of music and fireworks, thanks!! Despite the big crowd, there was a safe, great, and inclusive atmosphere – immigrants, Finns, tourists, children, young people, adults, and elderly people all celebrated side by side. Well done, Finland! Well done, Helsinki! Well done, all of us! This is a good start for the #Finland100 jubilee year! A happy taxpayer says thanks 🙂
As the public has been mobilised by positive ways and events, could this be continued? The next 100 years of Finland?
We marked the centenary by having a son, Lionel; at hospital, we were given lovely Finland 100 woolly socks and a hat knitted by the Marthas. 🇫🇮💙
It was great to be involved under the Finland 100 umbrella, as it gave credibility to our events and also boosted the enthusiasm of the participants: we felt that the work was important!
Thank you for the brand! The Finland 100 concept itself was the most important source of support for us. The common logo and status gave even the smallest project coordinators access to the best resources for their events.
