Notes on a better life, live from Finland

Posted on January 18, 2021 by Sonoma Valley Sun
Finnish journalist Anu Partenan, author of The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life,  an online lecture on Friday, January 22. The 11 a.m. event is presented by the Praxis Peace Institute of Sonoma.
Partenan lived in the U.S. for several years (even becoming a U.S. citizen, in 2013) but was drawn back to her homeland by the country’s humane services and compassionate culture.
As Praxis’ Georgia Kelly puts it, “Anu understands the disconnect between what we call ‘freedom’ in the U.S. as it contrasts with the intrinsic freedom in the Nordic countries. There is a reason why Finland has been ranked the happiest country in the world for the past three years, and Anu is ready to tell us about the policies and quality of life that keep their citizens at the pinnacle of happiness and well-being.”
The lecture on learning from the Nordic countries will be streamed live from Helsinki. Info and codes at
