Update by Pamela Antila, ICDP Finland chair:
ICDP Finland has been active for ten years now, year 2021 being its tenth year in operation. Much as during 2020, the COVID pandemic and the resulting restrictions have impacted our activities greatly.
The association has not been able to offer any trainings. Organizations around the country have also had trainings and groups largely on pause.
However, ICDP Finland has now been able to focus on its membership activities. We have 55 registered members and starting from September we have arranged a virtual ICDP morning coffee for members once a month.
ICDP Finland has also taken part in ICDP Norden (Nordic) board meetings and will continue the collaboration with the other Nordic countries.
The association has a registered and active website www.icdp.fi and is also active on social media, mainly Facebook and Instagram.
We hope to return to normal operation during 2022, with physical trainings and a 10-year anniversary with all ICDP trained people in Finland.
The ICDP Finland association will continue to work on introducing and spreading ICDP in Finland in both official language (Finnish and Swedish) as well as developing the programme in Finland.
