Final Post

The Social Care Legislation and Exerting Influence course has ended and this is our final post. Our topic was migration and the project was done in co-operation with African Care organization. Our project was about organizing goal-directed activities and exerting influence by using various methods with migrant women in Rastila. Our goals were achieved and we are very pleased with the outcome.

Show no mercy

It seems to me that we are living in a tough world. Values have changed. Our society, this welfare state that we live in was built upon the belief that we must all take responsibility for each other. The poor are as good as the rich. In order to build the best possible country we must make sure that we have the maximum number of citizens who are healthy and capable of working. This is what people believed after the wars when Finland slowly started to find its path as a modern welfare state.

“Kovat arvot palasivat Suomeen. Yhä useampi suomalainen uskoo siihen, että talouskasvu on hyvinvoinnin jatkumisen edellytys.” (Tough values made a comeback in Finland. More and more people believe that in order to maintain wellbeing the economy must grow.) (IS 13.4.2010)

High as a Kite

We have come to the end of our Blog! Our Exerting Influence course has been eye-opening and has taught us a lot. Our project brought us knowledge, new experiences and perspectives on more future fields to possibly work at. In our blogs we have shed some light on our own opinions on substance abuse, and the different matters concerning the broad topic. In addition, the entire course has provided a substantial amount of knowledge concerning the Finnish society and what everything is based upon. This knowledge was then easy to apply in our blogs and other assignments!

The end of the Journey

It’s bittersweet to end this course that we have somewhat enjoyed. We might have joked about the early mornings, having to return to school bench after a weekend full of activities centered around family and friends, but that’s all it is – a joke. We do realize now that how important this course has been to us and we have been very fortunate. Our topics, our class, and our projects have meant something to us. We are all proud to have been able to members of this team and this is the time where CloudChasers wish you guys the very best!
