On June 12 and 13, 2010, SGI-Finland held a Summer Training Course in the city of Espoo. A total of 87 attended.

The training course consisted of a study session on "Lessening One's Karmic Retribution" from SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's study lecture series "Learning from the Gosho: The Hope-Filled Writings of Nichiren Daishonin."

Encouraged by the writings, participants made new determinations to work toward accomplishing their own human revolution and becoming protagonists for peace who take positive action for the sake of the future.

Representative members shared experiences about their local SGI discussion meetings and the importance of dialogue in deepening understanding and the bonds of trust among each other. Youth members also shared their personal determinations for the future. In addition, there were dance and choir performances by the youth members.
