"Virtue is unafraid of daylight, never suspicious of enlightenment and least of all fears any setbacks when that is allowed to prevail."

250-council

In the autumn of 2014, the Anders Chydenius Foundation and the Helsingin Sanomat Foundation convened the 250 Committee, which is in charge of coordinating the preparation and communications of the 250th Anniversary of the Nordic Principle of Publicity (2016). The events related to the jubilee year include a seminar (The ‘Right to Know Day’ Seminar) at the Päivälehti Museum, organised in cooperation with the Anders Chydenius Foundation and the Helsingin Sanomat Foundation (2 December 2014 and 2 December 2015). The Committee will also organise a 250th anniversary seminar on 2 December 2016 in cooperation with the parliaments of Finland and Sweden and the organisers of Finland 100 Years.
