Finland is committed to bridging the gender gap in technology education and working life and creating safe online environments, including by addressing gender-based online violence. In addition, more funding will be allocated to new innovations, and technological solutions will be introduced more widely to support healthcare.

Finland also joins UNICEF, the UN Children’s Fund, in joint commitments. Finland supports the work of other Action Coalitions through commitments that promote sexual and reproductive health and eradicate online violence.

The total value of Finland’s Generation Equality commitment will amount to about EUR 150 million over the next five years.

Prime Minister Sanna Marin published Finland’s equality measures at the Generation Equality Forum on 30 June. On 1 July, Minister for Foreign Affairs Pekka Haavisto will attend a high-level discussion on the commitments.
