Finland's sustainable development work is based on the over 30-year tradition of multi-actor cooperation. It includes different actors in society from central government to municipalities and cities, autonomous regions, organisations, companies, the media, religious communities, labour market actors, the scientific Community and parliamentary parties.

The Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development is an influential forum that brings together these different actors in society and chaired by the Prime Minister.

The Agenda2030 Youth Group was established in spring 2017 in connection with the national Commission on Sustainable Development. The main objectives of the group are to bring young people's voice to the social debate on sustainable development and to plan policy measures, and to promote sustainable development in young people's own networks and internationally. In spring 2023, a youth climate and nature group was established as a sub-committee of the Agenda2030 Youth Group, which in turn brings young people's expertise especially to the discussion and preparation of nature and climate issues.

The Expert Panel is an independent scientific panel consisting of fourteen scientists whose task is to promote sustainable development in Finland.
