The Helsinki Diplomatic Association is a cultural and professional organization for the staff of foreign representations in Finland, in operation since 1980.

The HDA promotes social, cultural and sports events, open to all the diplomatic community in Helsinki. Some of our events are exclusive for members, and members also get priority access in events with limited capacity, as well as a free drink in our monthly happy hours!

Membership is open to all staff (below Ambassador-level) of Embassies, Consulates, Missions and Representations accredited to the Finnish government, as well as to Finnish diplomats.
