Finnish National Dialogues during Covid-19

The Finnish National Dialogues were set up as a rapid and creative response to the Covid-19 crisis and is the unique co-operational effort of national government and various agents of civil society. Starting in mid-April 2020, the dialogues provide the opportunity for citizens to come together to share their experiences, learn from one another, and build trust in the nation’s ability to steer through the crisis. From the very beginning, particular attention has been paid to inviting the participation of people from different demographic groups, especially individuals in vulnerable circumstances. All dialogues are documented and then used to build a comprehensive overall view which is published and utilized in different ways by the national government, municipalities, and agents of civil society.
