Finland Today is a non-partisan media organization based in Helsinki, Finland. We aim to deliver impartial, fact-based and informed media content in the English language to all residents of Finland, while also appealing to foreign interest in the country.

Primarily, FT aims to act as a gateway for non-Finnish speaking persons in the country, whether it be a permanent or temporary location of residence. In the pursuit of this goal, Finland Today aims to provide a different style of journalism that reflects the changing nature of media. We provide dynamic, focused and detailed analyses of specific interests to the community.

In the process of informing different segments of Finnish society, we also hope to attract Finnish-speakers who demand a different style of journalism, and one that is completely transparent.

Our mission is to provide an outlet for civic engagement for the entire community. Through an understanding of the Finnish media, we give a voice to the readers who know English better than Finnish.

Subsequently, we enable this demographic to better engage with matters concerning public policy, culture and politics—all essential for a fully-fledged democratic nation. Finland Today acts as an intersection between these communities and aims to achieve informative discussion concerning current affairs in Finland.

The ethical standards of Finland Today are comprised of:

  • Accurate facts, complete and presented in whole, withholding bias, individual preferences and preferences of the source. Impartial pursuit of information.
  • Independent work: not republishing translations of Finnish articles or other news entities. Plagiarism and misappropriation of intellectual property will not be accepted.
  • Strict opposition to dishonest manipulation of media content (e.g. photos, videos), and accurate labeling of such media.
  • Identification of all sources, unless the source requires anonymity to avoid persecution or reprimand.
  • Clear and strict boundaries surrounding identification of Finland Today staff: refusing to rely on subterfuge to gain access to information or sources.
