As part of the nordic campaign network plan, FIMU has produced a DVD as an important educational resource and effective media material, aiming to stand against racism in a long term project by addressing children at schools collaborating with Koululiikuntaliitto (school sports union) and has been supported by the Ministry of Education. The first version of the DVD is produced and can be ordered since 21.03.2006 (International Day against Racism) when it has been launched by Finnish famous world champion athletic Tommi Evilä, and distributed to ten Finnish schools chosen from many that have been applied for it due to lack of financial resources. The DVD has gained a very positive feedback especially from the teachers and FIMU is sure that the most of Finnish schools will welcome to show the DVD in their classes. A large demand of copies is expected and it is planned in near future to add subtitles in English, German, and Russian languages to fulfill all demands.
