Finnish Study Centres
There are 12 study centers in Finland. All the study centers together form Finnish Study Centres association which acts as an umbrella and advocacy organization of the twelve study centers. We support the development of operations and promotes co-operation.
Study centres are educational organizations which are maintained by private civic organisations. Half of the organisations that back study centres are affiliated with political parties or labour unions, and the rest are formed by independent non-governmental organisations.
Study Centres provide education independently or in cooperation with their member organisations. The range of studies offered is determined on the basis of the ideologies of the centre's collaborating affiliations. Their objective is lifelong learning, wellbeing and active citizenship, as well as the promotion of democracy and the activities of civil society.
