Foreign Minister Soini continues his visits to schools focusing on radicalisation

Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini will continue his tour of schools focusing on violent radicalisation. On Wednesday 29 November, he will pay a visit to the Pohjois-Tapiola upper secondary school.  When the series of school visits started at Tikkurila upper secondary school in Vantaa about a week ago, 300 students and teachers interested in the matter arrived to listen to and discuss with the Minister.

“The first school visit was a very rewarding experience. Young people have the courage to call things into question. From the stage in front of them it is easy to see if what you are saying is understood and if the audience finds it interesting,” Soini says.

The aim of the series of visits to Finnish schools is twofold: to enhance upper secondary school students’ knowledge of what foreign policy actions Finland pursues in order to prevent violent radicalisation and to try to make the youth more critical towards radicalisation.

This year’s last school visit will take place on Monday 18 December when the Minister meets students at the Maunula secondary school and Helsinki upper secondary school specialising in mathematics. The school visits will be continued next year, too.

The Foreign Ministry's email addresses are of the format firstname.lastname@formin.fi.
