Helsinki Freedom video series tells stories about life in the Finnish capital

A minidocumentary video series celebrates the freedoms that people living in the capital experience every day. A group of hand-picked creators were given the freedom to demonstrate what being free means to them.

The Helsinki Freedom minidocumentary series tells real stories of Helsinki freedoms as experienced by the real people of Helsinki. The concept of Helsinki Freedom is founded on the bold claim that Helsinki is the new city of the free, providing its citizens with the kind of freedoms possible only in the Nordic model.

The Helsinki freedoms were chosen through a questionnaire conducted with expats living in the Finnish capital. According to the questionnaire, the cornerstones of a good life in Helsinki are work-life balance, safety, equality, free education and free access to nature.

Each minidocumentary sheds light on some of the many freedoms Helsinki offers, from the opportunity to live a secure and balanced life to the chance to make the most of Finland’s world-class education system.
