One might wonder what a single-chamber parliament, dish drying cabinets and text messaging have in common. Or what the link is between maternity packs, xylitol, the sauna and free school meals. The answer is simple: they are all Finnish social innovations.

In Finland, as elsewhere, technical inventions have hogged all the economic limelight, but it is only recently that soc

It comes as no surprise to me to find that Finland has so many interesting innovations. My favorite part as always is Education Inno, one of which: decentralized education and equal opportunities for any one to pursue edu.

کتاب صد نوآوری اجتماعی از فنلاند بدون شک در مجموعه تامل‌ برانگیزترین عناوینی است که در چند سال اخیر به آن برخورد کرده‌ام. این کتاب چکیده‌ای از جامعه‌ای است که مشارکت اجتماعی در آن موج می‌زند و بیش از هشتاد درصد مردم آن حداقل عضو یک سازمان مردم نهاد ناسودبر هستند که احوالات کشور را بهبود بخشند. جامعه‌ای پنج و نیم میلیون نفری که سه میلیون نفر آن‌ها حداقل عضو یک کتابخانه هستند. کشوری که آموزش در آن یک هزینه نیست و به چشم سرمایه‌گذاری نگاه می‌شود، دبستانی‌ها و دبیرستانی‌ها حقوق ماهانه و دانشجویان هم ...more

剛開始看這本書時充滿後悔, 像是芬蘭各界領袖的政令宣導, 還宣導的不清不楚! 其後幾篇才開始有點人性, 可讀性也高一點!
或許說他山之石可以攻錯,但是這本書提到很多的觀念或政策作法,會讓讀者覺得 "這臺灣也有做呀?!", 完全沒有點出芬蘭的做法有何特殊之處.
這讓我想起在工作上讀相關報告或有考察的機會, 可是看到的東西常是它人的 "成果展示" 而非 "推動過程", 所以研究了老半天, 還是掌握不到其"眉角(關鍵之處)", 有時失敗的經驗比成功更可貴, 但很少有人願意把失敗給大家看, 也讓我們錯失了很多真正學習成長的機會! 讀這本書就是這種感覺, 看不到過程, 只是成果展示!

Cuốn sách khá mang đặc tính Phần Lan - lý trí và giản dị. Nếu so với các cuốn sách khác về phong cách sống Bắc Âu khác (Lagom - Thụy Điển, Hygge- Đan Mạch) thì cuốn này chưa có giọng văn lôi cuốn bằng. Cách trình bày nội dung cũng chưa được mạch lạc và hợp lý (có nội dung hơi lê thê và lặp).
Tuy nhiên đây là một cuốn sách giàu giá trị thông tin, cung cấp nhiều kiến thức thú vị về những sáng kiến đang được thực hành giúp Phần Lan trở thành một trong những nước đáng sống nhất. Từ những sáng kiến nh

Nareszcie skończyłem czytać “100 fińskich innowacji społecznych”, choć co chwilę odrywałem się od lektury i w sumie zajęło mi to nieco ponad 100 dni. Fascynacja tym państwem znalazła ujście i tak poza artykułami w sieci zacząłem czytać konkretne książki z oraz o Finlandii.

Ten zbiór 100 artykułów okazał się świetnym początkiem do poznawania tego kraju od środka. Rozdziały podzielone na sfery o których mowa dają szerszy wgląd w to jak działa społeczeństwo, służba zdrowia, polityka zagraniczna, or

Чудова книга про розвиток суспільства Фінляндії.

A collection of initiatives ordered with Scandanavian-like efficiency and more than a dollop of common sense. I was intrigued by the maternity box and the shared community approach to state borders.

An interesting book about more than 100 social innovations in Finland. Innovation in housing, education, health care and local self-government deserves special attention. In a word, Ukraine has someone to learn.

Цікава книжка про більш ніж 100 соціальних інновацій Фінляндії. Окремої уваги заслуговують інновації по забезпеченню житлом, освіту, охорону здоров'я та місцеве самоврядування. Одним словом Україні є у кого повчитись.
