    1. best reading, latest school start age—is sometimes called the‘Finnish paradox’

      The Finnish paradox stems from the fact that despite Finland having one of the latest school start ages in the world (at the age of 7), they also have one of the highest literacy achievements as well.

      The paradox is only perceived by those who may feel that hammering knowledge into children's heads from a young age is the best method of education.

    1. Finland's a remarkable place where when something is said, especially when it's said with data 00:02:09 backed analysis, it is discussed. It is not ignored. And what has happened is the work has been passed around. And I've been invited to go and speak at multiple levels of the Finnish and Swedish government now. And they're taking it very seriously because Finland has committed to being fossil fuel free, or at least carbon neutral by 2035. 00:02:35 And they've now actually starting to get their arms around the mechanics of that plan. And they're realizing the scale of what they're undertaking. And so they're taking it very seriously. And I'm now presenting my work four and five times a week to someone.

      Finnish government is open to evidence-backed ideas.
