1. Forest Republic of Finland – Forest Relationship is Genuine and Unique for Finns (two versions 26 + 8 minutes)

Finland is the most forest-covered country in Europe and the forest relationship of Finns is unique. This video presents how this forest relationship is both preserved and changing in this modern age.

Most of the Finnish forests are owned by ordinary families and part of this forest ownership ethos is that forest estates should be left to the next generation in a better condition than when you got them.

Forests are private property but at the same time they belong to all of us. Everymansright, also known as “freedom to roam”, enables free wandering, as well as picking berries and mushrooms – often to the amazement of foreign guests.

With the help of its forests, Finland has gained a top place among the welfare states. The utilization of forests has always been creative work, in which new technologies and products have replaced old ones. Right now, we are living in the middle of a great change towards bioeconomy.
