Discussions and social media

Summit discussions take place under a version of the Chatham House Rule which states that ’participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker, nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.’ The simple rule is to share the message, not the messenger. By following this simple rule, you will help ensure open dialogue between ministers and union leaders and among delegates as a whole.

Chatham House Rule also applies to social media. However, the Summit organizers wish to encourage social media discourse on the issues that will be discussed in Helsinki. For that reason, the Twitter hashtag #ISTP2019 has been set up to keep the dialogue going.


During the Summit, pictures for documentation, press releases and promotion of future events (for example on websites, in print media and social networks) will be taken. These pictures will also show Summit participants. Persons are chosen randomly. Given the Summit’s public nature, consent to the publication of pictures of the persons entering the location is assumed. For this purpose, an explicit declaration by the persons concerned is not required. By attending the Summit, I agree that pictures of me which are taken during the Summit can be used in the abovementioned ways without charge. Persons who oppose the use of pictures portraying them in the abovementioned ways are encouraged to inform the photographer immediately.
