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!
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.
As the public has been mobilised by positive ways and events, could this be continued? The next 100 years of Finland?
Amazing project! Thank you to everyone who took part ❤️
Long maternity leaves + paternity leaves, low infant mortality, high quality communal day care accessible to all families, free education, free healthy school meals, mostly free health care (don’t know where we are going with that, though…) … – many reasons why I feel priviledged to live in Finland 🇫🇮Thank you #finland100
100 thank you messages to the administrators of this page! 🙏🏻💙🇫🇮 It has been great fun and really interesting to follow the 100th anniversary of Finland on this page! THANK YOU!
Thank you for allowing us to be involved. It was easier to forge links with other participants when we mentioned that we had been approved for participation in the programme.
Funding from the Prime Minister’s Office was a catalyst and pivotal in enabling us to participate
The centenary improved as the year progressed. The end of the year was amazing. At the start of the year, we wondered whether anything would come of it. From the perspective of a project actor, however, we did not know, e.g. what the priorities were or the schedules. There was insufficient time to plan in more detail.
