Helsinki Process +10
13 Feb 2012 - 14 Feb 2012A decade has passed since the launch of the Helsinki Process. To mark the occasion Finland and Tanzania will organise Helsinki Process+10 Conference at Hanasaari, Espoo/Helsinki, February 13-14, 2012.
The aim of the HP+10 Conference is to assess the achievements and lessons learned of the Process and to discuss how to further strengthen the multistakeholder approach and the networks. The focus of the Conference is to look forward and to consider how to respond to the most pressing global challenges.
The first session will deal with the legacy of the Helsinki Process and the second session takes stock of the present and future challenges. The planned high level segment would include interventions by the Presidents of Finland and Tanzania. The aim thereafter is to devote the rest of the event for discussing the future of global governance through two themes - global economic governance presented by Minister for Foreign Affairs of Finland Mr. Erkki Tuomioja and sustainable development presented by Minister for International Development of Finland Ms. Heidi Hautala. Each presentation will be followed by a panel discussion. A summary of the Conference is to be presented in the closing session. After the Conference on Tuesday afternoon we will hold an open public dicussion for a wider audience.
The conference deliberations will contribute to Finland's preparations to the Rio +20.
