thisisFINLAND Foreign Correspondents’ Programme
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs has organized thisisFINLAND Foreign Correspondents’ Programme since 1990. The programme is a media training programme targeted for young international journalists.
The programme provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about Finland, Finnish society and the Finnish way of life. It includes briefings on various subjects, meetings with Finnish professionals and visits to business enterprises, cultural sites and institutions.
In 2015, thisisFINLAND Foreign Correspondents’ Programme was organized from 10th to 28th August. During the even years, ie. starting with 2016, we will start organizing smaller and shorter FCP Alumni meetings for handpicked media professionals that have previously participated in the FCP programme. The Foreign Correspondents' Programme alumni meeting was held from 22nd to 28th August, 2016. There will be no Foreign Correspondents Programme in 2017 due to the activities related to Finland’s centenary celebration.
