The Osuma – Inclusive Finland (2018-2020) and previously Creative and Inclusive Finland (2015-2017) coordination projects have supported the national implementation of Skills for Inclusion Initiative. The aim of the initiative has been to prevent exclusion and the negative impacts segregation may have on youth, while promoting their inclusion and wellbeing in everyday life. Increased collaboration between professionals in the fields of arts, sports and youth work has been considered important in finding new ways to support skills and self-motivation of youth. This publication overviews briefly the results of the projects.
