The region of Uusimaa is the most international district of Finland. About half of all immigrants in Finland live in Uusimaa and about 7% of the inhabitants have a native language other than Finnish, Swedish or Sami. Among the 20-40 year olds, the percentage is even 11%. As an international movement, the Social Democrats particularly invite those who came into Finnish society from abroad to join our community and help shape and improve life in Finland. We want your voice to be heard as well! You are very welcome to contact us in English as well, if you feel that your Finish does not suffice.
