National process

Finland’s National Action Plan on UNSCR 2250 is the first of it’s kind – in the whole world.

Finland’s first national action program for the implementation of the UN Security Council’s Youth, Peace and Security resolution has been drawn up together with active young people and youth organizations, state administration, research institutes and civil society.

Consultations across Finland took place and a ‘peace survey’ was drawn up to collect input from a broad group of young people. The 2250-network took the lead for the consultations and distributing the survey. The most Northern consultation was arranged in Ivalo; this potentially being the most northern 2250 event as of yet.

Young people were reached through civil society organizations and municipalities’ youth programmes. The peace survey targeted 15-29 year old Finnish youth and youth living in Finland. Results from the consultations and more information on the process can be found from the consultation report.
