The agreement between Kanuuna and the Swedish KEKS on the use of Logbook expired on 31 December 2019.
The introduction of the Logbook system for the electronic documentation of youth work was one of Kanuuna’s tasks as a Centre of Expertise during 2018–2019. Towards the end of the period, the suitability of the system was reassessed and it was decided to be abandoned due to challenges related to reporting, among other things.
A permanent solution for the development of a documentation system tailored to the needs of Finnish youth work is being sought together with the Ministry of Education and Culture. In the meantime, Kanuuna and the statistics team of the Regional State Administrative Agencies provide municipalities with an electronic form that records the same information known from Logbook. The form is available to municipalities free of charge.
More information will come as plans for the new documentation system progress.
