Organise an event

It’s easy to arrange and publicise your own Nature Day event. Get together with friends, relatives or people you meet through your hobbies to dream up ideas for the kind of event you’d like to join yourself. When you have a plan ready, register it as part of our Nature Days programme (the registration form will be available in English soon). Remember to tell other friends about your event and use social media to invite your contacts to join in.

Use the map to find an event where you can participate

To join the fun on the Nature Days just use the map to find out about interesting events near you. The range of events on offer will continue to grow until the week before the day itself, as people register their pop-up events.

Get out into Finland’s natural settings together and share your experiences

Who might you like to share your Nature Day with? Perhaps your family, your godparents or godchildren, an old person from a local old people’s home, a group of recently arrived immigrants from an asylum seekers’ reception centre, or a group of kindergarten kids? Together with your companions, choose the nature day that suits your idea best. Share the story of your trip on social media using the hashtag #luonnonpaivat / #naturedays.
