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!
