Join us in creating the programme
Finland’s centenary celebration is a joint effort. Have you got a project that could be included in the Finland Centenary Programme? Applications are received up to autumn 2017. This site provides instructions and requirements for the implementation of the projects and for cooperation with partner companies.
Please take into account that the Finland 100 secretariat is receiving hundreds of new application per week and that the application processing time is approximately three to four weeks; hence be early and thorough when submitting your application. Incompletely filled applications will significantly slow down the application process. Applications will not be processed during July 2017.
A project included in the programme doesn’t need to be an event. It can also be, for instance, a development project, a work or a campaign.
- Most of the project is implemented during 2017.
- The core theme in its realisation and content is ‘Together’.
- The link to independent Finland is to be clearly highlighted.
- In case of an annually recurring event, the content of the 2017 centenary year should be consistent with the year’s theme.
- The main content is not the sale of a product or service
Think about the following before completing the online form
Is there anybody engaged in the same line of work with whom to join forces to make the project even more impressive? Or would this be an excellent opportunity to approach somebody engaged in a completely different field to bring a new angle to the project? Who could you file a joint application with?
From what perspective will your project approach the Centenary Year theme of ‘Together’? For example, the theme could be realised through a new type of cooperation, broad-based participation or joint efforts. The project could promote a community spirit or bring together a wide range of different target groups. The project may not be exclusive or discriminatory.
How does your project relate to Finland’s independence, its history, present day or future?
More specifically, we are looking for proposals underling one or more of the following aspects:
- Birth and development of Finland’s independence
- Special strengths of Finnish society
- Finnish identity and landscape
- Deeds and shapers of the future
- Finland in the world
- Shared moments in 2017
- Gifts to the centenarian
