Hey volunteers, support persons and host families of Maailmanvaihto as well as other friends of our organization! Welcome to the Pride parade, a manifestation for equality and human rights, with Maailmanvaihto on Saturday the 29th of June!

We will meet at 11 a.m. in front of the National Library in the address Unioninkatu 36, from where we will walk to the starting place of the parade, the Senate Square. At the meeting place there will be our board member Alma Smolander greeting you with a sign Maailmanvaihto ry – ICYE Finland.

The parade begins at 12, and its route ends to the Kaivopuisto park. We will participate into the parade as a part of the general section into which no prior signing up is needed. The route (about 2,5 km) is Senate Square – Aleksanterinkatu – Mannerheimintie – Eteläesplanadi – Kasarmikatu – Neitsytpolku – Kaivopuisto. Along the route, there is a cobblestone road, tram tracks and a few uphill tracks.

We wish to advance equality in Maailmanvaihto. For this work, we made last year an equality plan. If you have comments on it or other ideas on advancing equality in our organization, we’d gladly hear from you! You can e-mail us at tiedottaja(at)maailmanvaihto.fi.
