The partnership programme is leading us towards an inclusive society
The sense of inclusion and skills required in society always develop through participation in different communities and different encounters. The promotion of integration and social inclusion requires involvement and contributions from all parties: communities, organisations, authorities, companies and municipalities. This work will make an impact when we all participate.
The integration partnership programme of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment supports the effectiveness of the work promoting integration and social inclusion by bringing together operators and increasing multi-professional and diverse cooperation. The operations of the partnership programme are based on open dialogue which challenges existing ways of thinking, produces up-to-date information, shares successful practices and further develops the operations. The partnership programme creates shared forums which enable open discussions and combines the latest knowledge with the practical know-how of professionals.
In the partnership programme, we build cross-boundary and multi-professional cooperation. We change the way integration work is done, in partnership. Join us!
Register to participate in the partnership programme
The partnership programme builds a national, open network of operators involved in the work related to the integration and social inclusion. In 2021, we will also start to establish regional partnership networks. By registering to participate in the partnership programme, you will receive current information about the programme and its partners, cooperation opportunities and materials supporting the work. The Centre of Expertise in Immigrant Integration at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment coordinates the national operations of the partnership programme.
Share your views about the cooperation and partnerships through the partnership barometer
The operations of the partnership programme are based on the needs and views of the operators. We collect views on the development needs concerning the cooperation and information about the operating and participation opportunities for operators through a partnership barometer carried out every two years. Operators involved in work related to integration and social inclusion, such as the authorities, organisations, institutions and religious operators, can participate in the partnership barometer. You can respond to the barometer by 31.12.2020. The results will be published at the beginning of 2021, and the operations of the partnership programme will be planned on the basis of the results.
The development of the partnership programme continues
In the future, a two-year action plan will outline the operations of the partnership programme. The content of the action plan for 2021–2022 has been designed together with the integration operators. You can read the draft action plan and give feedback on it using the form below.
