The Central Association of Finnish Pensioners (EKL)

Haapaniemenkatu 14
FIN-00530 Helsinki, Finland



The Central Association of Finnish Pensioners acts as a pressure group for its members, safeguarding their status and prestige in society. Also providing opportunities for social intercourse, cultural and leisure pursuits, holidays and tourism.

The EKL seeks to implement its objectives by influencing the political decision making at national and local level, by supporting the activities of the district organisations and associations, and by arranging training and cultural events.

Among its primary tasks are improving the channels for negotiation with the government, cooperation with the trade unions and acquiring more weight for the organisation.
