In 2021, the 10th session of the Finnish Expatriate Parliament (FEP) will convene for the first time digitally! The remote session is an exceptional solution, based on the health security risks and travel restrictions brought by the global coronavirus pandemic.
The digital session will renew the FEP as a cooperation channel, offering all 543 Finnish communities in 37 countries that are involved in the parliament activities equal opportunities to take part in the session from overseas.
The FEP’s work is based on initiatives submitted by Finnish expatriate communities which have ratified the parliament’s bylaws. The deadline for submitting initiatives is three months prior to the session. Those already proposed in for the 2021 session are presented on the FEP website.
The Finland Society is in charge of the Finnish Expatriate Parliament. Preparations for the digital session are underway and invitations will be sent to all FEP communities by December 10, 2020. Welcome to the worldwide parliamentary session!
