The website of Finland’s National Memory of the World Committee has been renewed
The website of Finland’s National Memory of the World Committee (www.maailmanmuisti.fi) has been renewed. The National Committee of Finland maintains the National Memory of the World Register. Nationally significant documentary and written cultural inheritance that may be in the possession of various organisations, communities or in some cases private persons, have been collected for the register.
The National Committee of Finland is responsible for the overall execution of the Memory of the World programme and its follow-up in Finland. The committee has been active since 2014. Its members represent various regions of Finland and organisations responsible for their documentary and literary cultural heritage.
The chairperson of the committee is Jussi Nuorteva, Director-General of the National Archives, who is also a member of the International Advisory Committee for the Memory of the World programme appointed by the Director-General of UNESCO.
