One hundred years of Åland’s autonomy

This year marks 100 years of Åland’s autonomy. The anniversary will be celebrated and remembered in a variety of ways. The province’s jubilee year will begin on 9 June 2021 and will culminate on 9 June 2022 with the centenary of Åland’s Parliament.

The Prime Minister’s Office is participating in the preparations for the jubilee year in close cooperation with the jubilee organisation and other operators. In addition to the national events, Åland’s autonomy will be celebrated at Finland’s diplomatic missions around the world.

The autonomy of Åland is an example of a successful solution for regional governance and an integral part of Finland’s democratic system. It is continuously developed in close cooperation with Åland.
