The first national Child Strategy to create a Finland for all children

Finland has now completed its first National Child Strategy. The strategy was published on February 23 2021. In 2020, the parliamentary committee which was responsible for preparing the Strategy formed a common view of the vision for a child- and family-friendly Finland that spans government terms.

The Strategy is based on three key ideas, which are to respect the rights of all children, take due account of children in society and support the wellbeing of children.Read the press release on Child Strategy (stm.fi)
