ISLP past and now
- Reija Helenius (Head of Development, Statistics Finland, Finland)
ISLP Past and Now The ISLP has a history of over 30 years. The project’s main idea is ever more topical today in the so-called post-truth era. The importance of reliable and essential information gets more weight all the time, and utilisation of information is an important skill for citizens. The ISLP started off from promoting the statistical skills of young people, now topical is similarly the promotion of statistical thinking and skills of citizens and other actors in society. How to put the global ISLP network into the best possible use? How to share good practices and models for the use of other countries? These questions and the project’s lifecycle, the past and the future, are discussed in the presentation.
