For the locally responsible persons
Kaikukortti activities are a form of cooperation among the local Kaikukortti networks and their municipalities, cultural service producers and producers of social, healthcare and wellbeing services. The responsibility of coordinating projects for testing Kaikukortti in practice and maintaining the activities locally is always local. The role of the Kaikukortti support and development service is to provide training for the locally responsible persons and mainly remote support with piloting and maintaining the activities, and to participate in the local development work, such a feedback meetings.

Kaikukortti national guideline
All the Kaikukortti partners must commit to the guideline. It is very important that the operating principles are followed. This ensures that the system works in the same way in all the Kaikukortti localities. The guideline is based on equality and the right of the focus group to participate in our common cultural life. The guideline has been developed together with actors in the cultural, social welfare, healthcare and wellbeing sectors and the focus group in workshops carried out during the Kaikukortti pilot projects. The guideline has been revised based on feedback on the Kaikukortti pilots and activities.
The guideline has been developed to promote equal opportunities in the cultural field. Some of the Kaikukortti localities have however also included operators in the field of sports. These actors are also expected to follow the same guideline.
The Kaikukortti national guideline describes the national operating principles of the Kaikukortti framework. The cultural operators and sports venues and communities as well as actors promoting social welfare, wellbeing and health in the Kaikukortti network commit to these principles.
The guideline was updated on 8 December 2021 and it is valid until further notice.
