Finland has been elected in Unesco’s executive board, which has a total of 58 members. Finland’s term in the board continues until 2021. Minister of Education Sanni Grahn-Laasonen found that the result was a recognition to Finland’s strong knowhow in educational and world heritage issues. Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini was also satisfied. According to Mr Soini, Finland now has a good seat in an organisation which carries out important work to prevent radicalisation.
