What's on


Welcome to the excursion to North Karelia's Pride in Joensuu on the 21st of May!

ISYY is involved in the implementation of the Pride 2022 with Seta in North Karelia, and the BRIDGES project will provide an opportunity for students on the Kuopio campus to participate in Pride in Joensuu!

North Karelia Pride Week is celebrated on 16th-22nd of May and on Saturday 21st of May is a traditional Pride procession and a park festival in Ilosaari. ISYY encourages all of its members to participate in the day’s program and wear student coveralls to form a rainbow. The program of the park festival includes picnics, live music and, of course, great company: ISYY has its own picnic area, which brings together all students. The first 100 students in the area will receive the Pride-Hemmo overall patch as a memory. In addition, at the park party at 5.30 pm, a joint photo will be taken on the stairs/auditorium in Ilosaari, where the student overalls form a rainbow. So craft your sign, put on your overalls and come and enjoy yourself with other students in Pride!
