Government report on the future

Once during each electoral period, the Government submits to Parliament a report on the future focusing on long-term perspectives. Each report is restricted to key strategic issues relative to policy decisions to be taken in a 10-20 year period.

In addition to the Government, the report process always involves Parliament. The aim is also to encourage broad debate in society.

Two-part Report on the Future dealing with the transformation of work

The first part of the Report on the Future (A shared understanding of the transformation of work) by Prime Minister Juha Sipilä’s Government was published on 8 June 2017 and the second part (Solutions in the Transformation of Work) on 11 October 2018. The theme of the report is the transformation of work and the future of Finnish work.

The Government Report on the Future serves to open discussion in the years ahead on potential solutions to the challenges posed by the transformation of work. The purpose is to generate information on the meaning of the transformation of work and how we can adapt to the changes successfully.

The Government Report on the Future was prepared by exploiting national foresight procedures and by trying out new ways of working. Besides the Government foresight report, the Government will also exploit foresight in its strategic procedures. This means creating new processes to support foresight and bolstering existing ones so that a foresight perspective can be brought into decision-making processes.
