I found a Report on the work of the Finnish tentative list working group (in Finnish). Here are some interesting findings about next possible Finnish tentative sites.

The working group has divided into three categories the sites that have a potential to meet the conditions set by the World Heritage Strategy.

THE FIRST CATEGORY: INTERNATIONAL SERIAL NOMINATIONS
The first category has a number of sites that may not be considered on their own, but have a chance to succeed as part of an international serial nomination:
- Olympic buildings
- Labor movement initiative, Paasitorni (Helsinki Workers' House)
- Underwater cultural heritage
- War graves
- Salpa Line

THE SECOND CATEGORY: REQUIRE FURTHER INVESTIGATION OR RESEARCH
The second category has sites or themes where the working group sees potential for OUV, but which require further research or studies to demonstrate this.
- Oulujoki power plants
- Finnish lighthouses and waterways (mixed)
- Conifer tar production
- Cultural landscapes

THE THIRD CATEGORY: READY TO BE EVALUATED FOR THE TENTATIVE LIST
The third category has sites that are so ready that the working group believes they can be sent to ICOMOS for evaluation for a tentative list.
- Areas created as a result of systematic settlement activities during and after World War II (1940–1954)
- The humane modern architecture of Alvar Aalto

Longer descriptions are on Finland topic of this Forum.

North and South Korea - DMZ

"as tensions between Seoul and Pyongyang mount, the plan to jointly seek UNESCO listing of the Demilitarized Zone with North Korea is uncertain"

"The deputy commander of the US-led United Nations Command was positive about our idea. We also considered stationing staff at the Kaesong liaison office. But the office was destroyed" WOW This is really ironic!!
