Young people who actively campaign on climate change and human rights issues participate in the scheme. Eva will end her day with a meeting with the Prime Minister to discuss issues of gender equality in technology.
Prior to the ceremony, the Prime Minister of Finland Marine called for ensuring that we provide opportunities for all in the field of technology. “Advances in technology should not create further divisions in countries and societies,” She added.
Last year, Finland was ranked third in the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, but women were still under-represented in the country’s technology sector.
Last year, when Miss Marin was sworn in as Finland’s prime minister at the age of 34, she was the youngest prime minister in the world.
She is the third female Prime Minister of Finland and her party is an ally of four other left-wing political parties. All these political parties are headed by women and three of them are less than 35 years old.
