Finland is the happiest country on earth. What can we learn from this Nordic nation? How is its education, health care and housing systems different to ours? Ros Taylor speaks to Danny Dorling, professor of human geography at the University of Oxford and author of Finntopia: What We Can Learn from the World's Happiest Country, to work out what makes it such a well-functioning state.

  • “Finland has ended up doing remarkably well, if you’re trying to show people what is possible and what is different, let’s look there.”
  • “Government ministers in Finland resign upon immediately making the smallest of mistakes, they simply go, no questions asked.”
  • “There aren’t good schools and bad schools, there are just good schools. Teachers have a lot of autonomy.”

Written and presented by Ros Taylor. Producer Jet Gerbertson. Assistant producer Kasia Tomasiewicz. Lead producer Jacob Jarvis. Bunker music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Robin Leeburn. Group Editor Andrew Harrison. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production
