In Finland, the goal of Demo Finland is to raise awareness in issues concerning development and democracy among political parties and also to enhance positive attitudes towards development co-operation among Finnish political parties. Demo Finland offers a chance for Finnish political parties and politicians to gain a practical experience in democracy support and to utilize their personal expertise from politics.

Demo Finland holds seminars and training events relating to democracy and development in Finland. Political parties have a chance to take part in Demo Finland’s work in Finland for example by participating in these events and in the visits of international delegations. The majority of Demo Finland events are open to the public. Demo Finland also does event co-operation with other stakeholders. The World Village festival organised by Kepa has traditionally seen Demo Finland at the Democracy Tent, where not only Demo Finland but all its member parties have a chance to introduce themselves to the festivalgoers.
