A Finland full of well-being

We want people in Finland to be well.

Good leisure activities play a central role in creating well-being. That is why we need sufficient opportunities for both exercise and cultural activities.

Finland is not just the land of the thousand lakes – it is the land of the thousand associations. Volunteer-organized events create a sense of community and quality of life. Culture, sport, local and associations’ activities strengthen identity and social capital and play an important role in our society.

We want to

  • create the conditions for offering equal and gender-equal possibilities for sport training and other leisure hobbies
  • increase how much people in Finland exercise, and thus their well-being
  • see active measures for tackling drug abuse
  • see sound, healthy schools, senior homes and other public buildings
  • secure associations’ activities through freedom from taxation and avoidance of needless permit and application procedures
  • see culture supported by the state, but not directed by it
  • secure small theatres’ operating conditions
  • see cultural policy contribute to greater diversity and a wider cultural offering
  • see our cultural institutions have good operating conditions and for the Swedish-language theatre (Svenska Teatern) to have the status of a national theatre

The parliamentary elections are education elections
