Who are we?
Pakanaverkko ry. is a Finnish non-profit registered organisation. The name can be translated as Finnish Pagan Network, ry. standing for registered Finnish association. Founded in 1999, its main goals are improving and enabling inter-religional co-operation between Finnish Pagans, and providing unbiased information on Pagan religions to mass media and individual people. Pakanaverkko is Finland’s largest Pagan organisation.
Pakanaverkko also seeks to promote freedom of religion and to get Pagan religions on an equal footing with Christianity in our country. As long as Pagan religions are not publicly recognised in our society, the general public will tend to view them with suspicion and even deem them malign. Changing the public opinion into accepting Pagan religious practice can only be achieved with efficient spreading of truthful information which would correct the prejudiced views so rampant in this day and age.
