Both Innovative and Sustainable: The Perfect Balance

Tuesday - October 25, 2016


Society responsible and at the same time market leading?


Absolutely. With a Master’s Degree from Oulu.


Why the young generation goes North

The Millennials care about the environment and respect the nature much more than their parents did. They realise the threats and understand the urgency of adopting a different mentality. You can see that in their life style: Healthier nutrition choices, greener ways of transportation, smarter holiday plans, less materials, less cigarettes and more sports.

Does that mean that they don´t care about development? Not at all, but they define “successful development” in a more demanding way: Not just lucrative, it also needs to be responsible. Not only pioneering, it also needs to be sustainable.

This increasing need, to live in a more human and at the same time highly advanced reality, is the main reason why the young generation chooses to go north for their personal and professional development.


F for the Future – F for FinlandFind the perfect balance by studying in Finland

Live and study in Finland stands high on the life agenda of the young people and they explain us the reasons:

» A peaceful country: According to the Global Peace Index, Finland is the 6th most peaceful country in the world.

» A beautiful blend: Leading edge information technology lies on a backdrop of fresh air, scenic vistas, green forests and impressive saunas.

» A progressive society: Locals and foreigners enjoy an equal and safe life that is shaped from low crime rates to very high gender equality.

» A world class education system: Due to the committed government, the focus on transferable skills, the hands-on activities and the innovative teaching methods, Finland has one of the best, if not the best, education systems in the world.

» Friendly people: The lovely highly educated Finnish, that have been ranked as the most honest people worldwide, enjoy a fun and active life full of ice hockey, heavy metal music, fishing and snow sports that excite the guests.

» Santa Claus: And of course the father Christmas, comes from Finland and makes the country even more attractive for the young people that want to see their dreams come true.
