Monetary policy challenges, the economic forecast and the life of Risto Ryti all feature in the Bank of Finland Museum’s autumn programme of evening events for the public


The Bank of Finland Museum’s autumn 2022 programme of evening events for the public also highlights the themes of financial supervision, climate stress tests and the accumulation of housing debt.

By arranging these types of events, the Bank of Finland aims to foster financial literacy among the public and to boost knowledge of financial markets. The aim is also to promote dialogue between the Bank and the general public.

The autumn programme’s events will be held in the Bank of Finland Museum (address: Snellmaninkatu 2). The events can also be followed live online. Each evening event starts at 17:00. The events will be recorded and can be viewed afterwards on the Museum’s website.
