Maailmanvaihto’s Spring Picnic Sat 25.5.

It’s once again time for Maailmanvaihto’s Spring Picnic. Come to enjoy the spring time together!

  • Saturday 25th of May 2019 at 2PM – 4PM
  • Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden, Kaisaniemenranta 2, Helsinki

We warmly welcome to the spring picnic Maailmanvaihto’s volunteers, host families, support persons, representatives of volunteers’ workplaces as well as other friends of our organization!

Come to greet old and new friends and enjoy the idyllic atmosphere of Botanic Garden! Maailmanvaihto will offer some snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, but you can also bring some vegetarian food to share. In case you want, you are welcome to bring also some game for the picnic.

We will meet at the gate of Kaisaniemi Botanic garden (address Kaisaniemenranta 2) at 2PM and then walk together to the picic spot in the garden. We will have the picnic near the café of the garden, Cafe Viola. You can also join us later. If the day is rainy, the picnic will be held at Maailmanvaihto’s office (Oikokatu 3).

In the same weekend there will be World Village Festival at Kaisaniemi Park and Railway Square. The festival offers lots of music and other program. There will also be organisations representing their activities, and one can eat well in the several pop-up restaurants in the festival area. Maailmanvaihto will be present at NGO tent “Mahdollisuuksien tori”, so the festival is really worth visiting! 🙂 The entrance to the festival is free.

Please sign up for the picnic to the address tiedottaja(at) on Thursday 23th of May the latest, so that we know to bring to the picnic a proper amount of juice and cookies. 🙂 Unfortunately Maailmanvaihto cannot cover travel costs to the event.

See you on Saturday the 25th of May! The outdoor garden is wheelchair accessible, and assistant dogs are welcome.
