The Finland Government the City of Helsinki and the World Economic Forum to Work Together to Harnessing Technology for Social Progress

 

|| Wednesday: July 01: 2020 || ά. The World Economic Forum, Finland’s Ministry of Transport and Communications and City of Helsinki launch collaboration, that aims to accelerate digitalisation, data economy and automation. From the perspective of Finland and Helsinki, it is important to enhance national and international data co-operation and seek international impact for Finland's extensive data competence.

The on-going digital transformation changes practices in all sectors of society. The objective of the collaboration with the World Economic Forum is to promote new technologies and new types of social and business structures and the dissemination of the related best practices worldwide. The initiative co-operation agreement, signed in June, provides for the secondment of an expert to the World Economic Forum Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Network:C4IR for a fixed period of time.

The Ministry of Transport and Communications and the City of Helsinki will, also, further examine the possibilities for establishing a C4IR Network office in Finland, that would focus on promoting international data policy and data economy. "The well-being and economic success of Finnish society depends on our efforts to boost the digital development and provide pioneering services for global sale. The role planned for Finland's office as a promoter of data economy and data policy provides excellent support for our national key objectives. It is essential that we reach a key position in the international influencing network." says the Minister of Transport and Communications Mr Timo Harakka.

"The collaboration between the City of Helsinki and the World Economic Forum launched in 2019 has offered us many opportunities to enhance the operations of our city and promote international co-operation and networking with key research organisations and companies. It is significant that the agreement now signed by the central government and the City of Helsinki expands our co-operation to include data economy, in which Finland and Helsinki are pioneers, even, on a global scale." says the Mayor of Helsinki, Mr Jan Vapaavuori.

"Forward-looking, agile organisations will benefit the most in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Emerging technology provides us with limitless opportunities but, we need to ensure there are clear frameworks for how it is used. We are looking forward to further collaboration with the City of Helsinki to ensure we are co-designing human-centred policies around emerging technology, that will benefit all of society, not just the privileged few." said Mr Murat Sonmez, the Managing Director and the Head of the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Network, World Economic Forum.

The practical arrangements for the project began in February 2020. In addition to central government and cities, research and business representatives are currently involved in the work of the national project group. The Ministry of Transport and Communications is responsible for co-ordinating the project. The City of Helsinki is responsible for fulfilling the Fellow obligation under the agreement.

About the World Economic Forum: The World Economic Forum is the International Organisation for Public-Private Co-operation. It engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. It was established in 1971 as a not-for-profit foundation and is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. It is independent, impartial and not tied to any special interests.

Championing local contemporary art and its relationship with the global community, the eagerly anticipated Helsinki Biennial 2020 draws on Helsinki’s distinct characteristics and the surrounding archipelago, offering a unique contribution to the international art scene.

“Helsinki believes in culture. The city is a diversified and internationally attractive city of arts and culture, with Amos Rex as one of the leading attractions.

The Inaugural Helsinki Biennial 2020: The Same Sea: June 12-September 27

 

|| Friday: October 31: 2019 || ά. Entitled, The Same Sea, the inaugural edition of the Helsinki Biennial 2020, taking place between June 12 and September 27, will reflect on the notion of interdependence: everything is connected to everything else and supports the whole. Curated by Ms Pirkko Siitari and Mr Taru Tappola, the Head Curators of Helsinki Art Museum:HAM, the Biennial will bring together around 35 leading Finnish and international artists and groups of artists.

Located on the city’s Vallisaari island, a former military base, Helsinki Biennial 2020 will be comprised of 80% new commissions and site-specific works. Using the setting of Vallisaari to form the tangible and conceptual starting point for the curation of the 2020 biennial, The Same Sea, places emphasis on the biosphere as one interconnected entity.

‘’The seas, continents and islands are intertwined eco-systems, that form actual and symbolic networks. Islands offer shelter, places to live and strongholds. The sea separates and connects. We, often, talk about the seas but, in reality, there is only one sea, a continuous layer of saltwater, that surrounds the continents. The biota and physical conditions of the sea, such as, temperature, currents and surface level, all impact our shared future, all over the world.’’ put the Curators.

A number of artists are working on subjects, that originate from the daily life of Vallisaari’s former residents and the island’s military history. Some of the artworks deal not only with the local and global consequences of human activity but, also, with alternative visions of the future. Located outside along cobbled paths and inside historical buildings, gunpowder cellars and empty residential buildings, the works highlight unknown and abandoned places whilst bestowing new meanings.

‘’Making and presenting art on Vallisaari requires complex co-operation to take the unique environment into account.’’ Ms Siitari and Ms Tappola put forward. ‘The idea and site of each artwork has been evaluated from the point of view of nature conservation and historic preservation.’’

The diverse environment of Vallisaari sets a strict framework for the Biennial. In accordance with the Helsinki City Strategy, aiming to be carbon neutral by 2035 and reduce emissions by 60% by 2030, the Helsinki Biennial 2020 emphasises the importance of responsible values. Using a bespoke programme from the Finnish environmental management system EcoCompass, to direct production and infrastructure, the Biennial prompts us to rethink current and entrenched modes of behaviour.

As a city, Helsinki is committed to promoting a more sustainable way of life. The Think Sustainably service, launched earlier this year, invites visitors to make informed choices whilst at the biennial, and in all of Helsinki. Moreover, the biennial will also create its own Virtual Reality experience, allowing participants to be transported to Vallisaari without actually travelling to Helsinki.

Offering alternative ways of experiencing a biennial, Helsinki Biennial champions art’s role in creating channels for discourse, radical empathy and ecological ethics.

‘’Helsinki’s bold and uncompromising investments in art, also, have a broader impact on the development of our home city, including, the well-being of residents. Helsinki Biennial will further raise Helsinki’s status as an interesting city of culture and art.’ says Ms Mari Männistö, Cultural Director of the City of Helsinki.

Artists, whose names have been announced, to take part are: Mr Paweł Althamer:PL:1967, Mr Tadashi Kawamata: JP:FR:1953, BIOS Research Unit, FI: 2015, Ms Alicja Kwade:PL:1979, Ms Katharina Grosse: DE:1961, Ms Laura Könönen:FI:1980, Gustafsson and Haapoja, FI: 2012, Mr Tuomas A. Laitinen:FI:1976, Ms Hanna Tuulikki, UK:1982 and Mr Jaakko Niemelä, FI:1959, IC-98, FI:1998, Mr Mario Rizzi, IT:DE:1962, Ms Marja Kanervo, FI:1958 and Ms Maaria Wirkkala, FI:1954.

The final list of artists and details on the new commissions will be announced in spring 2020. Helsinki Biennial is supported by the City of Helsinki and the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation.

Helsinki Biennial: Helsinki Biennial is an international contemporary art event, which takes place on Vallisaari island. Creating a platform to communicate the diverse and dynamic nature of the contemporary Finnish art scene, the event extends beyond this context to establish links and collaborations with the wider global artistic landscape. Informed by Vallisaari, a former military island fusing wild nature and urban heritage, sustainable and responsible values lie at the core of Helsinki Biennial.

Free to the public, each edition will primarily comprise of major new, site-specific commissions by leading international artists. Helsinki Biennial embodies the city’s ambitious, cultural vision, committed to developing Helsinki’s art scene both on a grassroots and institutional level. A major initiative of Helsinki Art Museum:HAM and the City of Helsinki, the biennial is directed by HAM’s Director Ms Maija Tanninen-Mattila. The Biennial is further supported by an international advisory committee, made up of curators and academics.

The Elsinki Book Fair: The Helsinki Book Fair 2019: October 24-27

 

 

|| Tuesday: October 22: 2019 || ά. Dear Reader, where there are books, there, absolutely, surely, must, love be or, rather, is. Why do we say that? Think of it: unless a person, who is an author, is utterly and completely insane in love with her:his book in the head they will not drag themselves through the hassle to write it and endure the agonies in going through with it all and, then, follow the ‘tedious argument’ of publishing that book! That’s only just the beginning! The real love, still needs to be demonstrated by that Author, with far more arduous and determined work than Romeo and Juliet when that book requires to be ‘promoted’ for the purpose of selling copies of it! Even, that is not the half of it!

And, then, comes the Reader and she:he reads it and falls in love with it and it, despite, she:he had nothing to do with the book’s being written, becomes part of her:his life. And, she:he loves the book. This book and not the other one. That is The Kalevala and not the Carpathian Cosmogenesis! Or, The Unknown Soldier and not the Coronation Hypothesis. Therefore, there IS love inside the books and outside of them because their insides contain humanity while the outsides face the same humanity looking in with their inner lights. So, here we have news of the Elsinki Book Fair 2019, October 24-27, indeed, taking place in Elsinki.

And, you stop and ask, where is that Elsinki: well, we love Helsinki so much that we baptised her as Elsinki, though, the Elsinkilainens or the Suomalainens do not, yet, officially, recognise our naming of their city, no one has, yet, told us off for doing so, presumably, they have made some allowances towards some mad, going mad about their love of Helsinki so that they had to rename their city! However, our Elsinki happily resides in Helsinki, where this beautiful book fair is calling everyone. Tell them you heard about it from Elsinki Times, called, The Humanion. By the way, there are a lot and lot of Suomalainens, out there, who read The Humanion, which, they, probably, with the same affection as ours to Elsinki, will call The Ihmenion! Go to the beautiful Helsinki Book Fair and make a go of love of books or any other love for unless we do and be love there is hardly any meaning left in this human existence.

Therefore go and love and say hello to all books and speak to their authors, have wonderful conversations with people you know not and buy books for strangers or leave them on the public transport. Read and call yourself a Reader: Reader of that, what is imagination. Books are love of imagination: humanity is imagination with infinity of love making an infinity of possibility in the blank for us to be and do write: human.

Helsinki Book Fair is the most important event for lovers of literature and book industry professionals in Finland. It brings together the brightest stars of Finnish literature and the most promising new talents. The themes at this year’s book fair include the freedom of speech, song-writing and American literature and culture.

Helsinki Book Fair features 15 programme venues and more than 40 international literary guests. The programme consists of more than 800 debates and interviews, In addition to authors, speakers include politicians, artists, journalists and prominent figures.  The total number of performers is more than 1,000.

More than 300 publishers, bookstores and second-hand booksellers take part in Helsinki Book Fair every year. Helsinki Book Fair is hosted by Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre in co-operation with the Finnish Book Publishers Association and the Booksellers’ Association of Finland.

Helsinki Book Fair, also, features an Antiquarian Book Exhibition, co-hosted with the Finnish Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association. More than 84,000 literature fans visited the fair last year.

Elsinki: Where IS It: In Finland But the Finnish Do Not Know That Yet: What IS It: It IS High Rational High Cardian High Imaginational and High Ingenious Forming Something That Can Be Called a Sampo That IS Green Circular and Sustainable: And Blue So to Be Sibelian and Visionary at the Same Time

 

 

|| Wednesday: July 10: 2019 || ά. Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which started on July 01, brings Helsinki, that The Humanion had christened as Elsinki many years ago and we, even, have a Home for Elsinki in The Humanion for the records for the Finnish people, a lot of international visibility. The delegates, who visit the city can experience the sustainable everyday solutions of the City of Helsinki and they would, having read this piece, go back home, in addition to, having fallen in love with Elsinki and forgetting altogether that that Athens of the North was once called Helsinki, always want to come back and take a walk through the Sibeliuskatu or Etelaranta and, at dawn, hear the northern dawn chorus and 'see' how the earth sings her symphony though vibrations, that the physiology plays out and through in resonance, transforming the soul into a lake and the physiology into a Kantele. If, the Finnish do not believe this, let them try and find this music and let them write to us about it! Let some Suomalainen some day compose a Ninth Symphony about this Northern Dawn Chorus!

‘’Helsinki is a forerunner in Europe when it comes to sustainable urban development. During the Finnish Presidency we want to highlight solutions, that are not only environmentally friendly and energy efficient but, are, also, built on the well-being, equality and good routines of the citizens.’’ says the Mayor of the City of Helsinki, Mr Jan Vapaavuori.  Over the upcoming six months, the Most Functional City in the World will offer the EU meetings and their delegates a safe, smooth and functional setting, as well as, attractive urban culture, next-door nature and Finnish experiences. All meetings to be held in Finland have been centralised in Helsinki, permitting sustainable meeting arrangements. Some 20,000 meeting delegates and 1,000 representatives of foreign media are expected to visit the Finnish capital.

Helsinki celebrated the opening of Finland’s Presidency with a relaxed park Festival at Töölönlahti Park, for the non-finnish readers, this is pronounced as, nearest possible English, Tho-lon-laahthi, on Monday, July 08. The all-day event welcomed thousands of visitors from Finland and abroad. All happenings and components of the festival echoed sustainability, an important theme for Finland during the presidency.

Sustainability was reflected by the programme and sites, including, a Youth Eco-café, a hobbyhorse workshop with hobbyhorse materials provided by Helsinki Metropolitan Area Reuse Centre and bio-degradable face glitter paints at the EU tent.

The strongest messages about sustainability were delivered through the artwork Plastic Mama. The 30-metre-wide artwork created from recycled plastics was artist Ms Kaisa Salmi’s statement about the state of the Earth. The artist addressed the audience from the top of the artwork for 10 hours.

The Finnish Presidency opening festival, also, marked the launch of a Töölönlahti sports project, which challenges everybody to move around the Earth for the good of the Baltic Sea. ‘’The sports project extends through the Finnish Presidency period. Helsinki invites every resident, visitor and meeting guest to tour the Töölönlahti area, accumulating kilometres on a joint tour around the Earth. If and when we log enough kilometres to circle the Earth, about 40,000 kilometres, the City of Helsinki will donate the funds originally earmarked for gifts to meeting participants, a total of 50,000 euros, to Baltic Sea protection’’’ says the Mayor Mr Vapaavuori in his opening speech.

Helsinki is a forerunner among the European cities, for instance, when it comes to measuring the UN’s sustainable development goals. Helsinki’s sustainable solutions are exhibited on the Signals from Helsinki website.

In schools, EU will be a theme of phenomenon-based learning in the autumn term. Through phenomenon-based learning the pupils will study various monthly topics, such as, peace and fair trade. During the ministerial meetings within the Presidency programme, the central library Oodi will harbour a Pop-up school, where the meeting delegates and the media can get acquainted with the Finnish school system and teaching in Helsinki schools.

Those interested about what the City of Helsinki has been doing to bring about the vital message of seeking and striving to be green, circular and sustainable in existence, life and life style, economics and way of being, may, contact

The Fourth Conference on National Dialogues Brings World Experts Together in Helsinki: June 11-12

 

 

|| Thursday: June 06: 2019 || ά. The Fourth Conference on National Dialogues will bring together peace work stakeholders and experts in peace processes in Helsinki on June 11-12. The two-day conference will discuss ways of using technology in peacebuilding and examine potential risks for peace processes arising from technology. Attention will, also, be paid to the complex nature of conflicts and peace processes and to various actors’ relations and interdependencies.

Myanmar, Yemen and Libya are examples of today’s complicated conflicts. According to peace negotiators and participants engaged in different dialogues, the Conference on National Dialogues is an important forum for sharing best practices. This year, the speakers will be, among others, Ms Hailemariam Dessalegn, former Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Mr Yasser Abdullah Al-Raeeini, Minister responsible for the implementation of National Dialogues in Yemen, Mr Salem Avan, the Director responsible for cyber security, data analytics and technological innovations at the UN Headquarters and Mr Achol Jok Mach, Specialist at Peace Tech Lab in Kenya.

A range of new tools will be needed for conflict prevention and conflict resolution. National dialogues’ strength lies in that they bring together various actors and organisations in society to explore avenues for sustainable peace.  Finland wants to promote better opportunities for participation for women and youth and help them play a role in society.

Permanent solutions to conflicts can only be achieved by addressing the underlying political, economic and social problems, that, always, create and sustain the grounds for peace to break up, letting conflicts to break out in the first place and with that break up of peace, ‘actors’ connections, bonds, relationships, trust etc not only break up but, also, get on a progressively downhill path of mistrust, hostility and antagonism, that all keep on building up towards deliberate aggressiveness and militancy so that communications, interactions and inter-exchanges can not and do not take place.

The Conference on National Dialogues is organised by Finland’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs together with the Crisis Management Initiative:CMI, Finn Church Aid:FCA and the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Mission:Felm. Felm will serve as this year’s conference secretariat.

Finland: Is It Elsinki Time: Have Your Say Now For If You Do Not You Can Not Complain Later
 

 

 

|| September 26: 2018 || ά. A Survey on ending the seasonal time changes is being made available on Otakantaa.fi site from today, September 26 and it will be open till October 12. The Survey will provide an opportunity for the public to express their views on what should be Finland's permanent standard time in future: summer-time, winter-time or some other time zone. Were the Finland Government to ask The Humanion for our opinion we would be more than glad to offer it: We are all for Elsinki Time, which should forever remain close to Sibelian Symphonies: Eternally new and eternally unchanged and unchangeable.

Now that we have opened up the Survey with our Elsinki Time, we invite everyone to take part in this so that everyone has their say, when one is asked to do so. The results of the Survey will be used in preparing Finland's position on the Directive proposal regarding summer-time arrangements. The aim of the survey is to examine views and opinions on whether Finland should adopt winter-time or summer-time on a permanent basis. Information on the opinions and wishes of Finns on the matter will, also, be collected in a poll, that will be carried out by TNS Kantar Oy.

The Survey results will represent the opinions of Finns according to regions, age groups and socio-economic background. During the preparations, impact assessment in other areas will, also, be carried out and experts will be consulted.

Finland has continuously observed summer-time since 1981. According to the current provisions, summer-time begins on the last Sunday of March at 03:00, when the clocks are turned forward one hour. Summer-time ends on the last Sunday of October at 04:00, when the clocks are turned back one hour. So, summer-time is in place for seven months and winter-time for five months of the year.

If, the seasonal time changes end, the choice of the permanent standard time will affect the number of daylight hours in the evening and morning. If, summer-time were to be adopted as the permanent standard time, evenings would, on average, be somewhat lighter and mornings darker. If, the choice for the permanent standard time would be winter-time, mornings would, on average, be somewhat lighter and evenings darker.

In practice, the time zones of other countries will, also, have impacts on businesses, for instance. The ending of the time switch is expected to have positive effects on health.

The discussion to be opened at the site has attracted a lot of interest and the number of respondents is expected to be exceptionally high. Measures have been taken to prepare for a peak in the number of service users. However, slowness or short breaks in the service are possible.

A decision will be made at the EU level on ending the summer-time arrangements. After that each Member State can decide which time zone it will adopt. In Finland, Parliament has taken the view that the abandonment of time changes should be taken forward within the EU.  No decisions have been made as to which time zone Finland should adopt.

If, a decision is reached to end the practice of daylight saving time, the permanent standard time in Finland will be decided by Parliament.  A broad-based consultation will be arranged in Finland on the matter. The results will be used in further preparations of the matter.  The Directive proposal will be discussed in Government and Parliament. Finland's official position on the proposal will be formed in the discussions. In the EU, the Directive will be prepared further in the Council and the European Parliament.

The possible adoption of the Directive is a joint decision of the EU Council and Parliament. Only after that it will be nationally implemented in each Member State. In order to ensure a seamless transfer to the new arrangement, the Commission proposes that each Member State inform by no later than April 2019 whether it wishes to adopt summer-time or winter-time on a permanent basis.

According to the proposal, the last compulsory change to summer-time would take place on Sunday, March 31, 2019. After that, EU Member States wishing to permanently adopt winter-time can once more change the clocks on Sunday, October 27, 2019. After that date, changes would no longer be possible.
