Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union – IntroductionFunctionality and Wellbeing
An introduction video for Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2019. Two minutes and 17 seconds in length.
We Finns take pride in being a bit quirky. We prefer action to words. The arctic climate gives us guts or “sisu” as we call it. We have a unique relationship with nature and sustainable thinking comes naturally to us. We always seek practical solutions, both in politics and everyday life.
There are not that many of us and that’s why we believe in equality and working together. Together we can do it better and the same goes for the EU. Today’s challenges can’t be solved alone. Together we must fight climate change, increase security, create wellbeing and jobs and stand up for European values and human rights. Let’s seek for European solutions.
