The Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY) has the honor to invite all students to the Independence Day Torch Parade on 6.12.2018 in Joensuu. The Torch Parade is one of the oldest and most respected traditions of the Student Union.
Before the parade, participants are welcomed to enjoy a warm serve “glögi” (a traditional Finnish Christmas non-alcoholic drink) at ISYY’s office (Haltia, Yliopistokatu 7) starting from 2 pm.
The parade starts at the ISYY´s office, where students are asked to arrive at the latest at 3.40 pm. The parade will depart at 4 pm and walk to the memorial grounds through Joensuu downtown. The ceremony at the memorial grounds will start at 4.30 pm. Robert Kuhlmann, the Chairperson of Karelia-ammattikorkeakoulun opiskelijakunta POKA Board will give a speech at the memorial grounds. We will also lay a wreath on the soldiers’ grave followed by the Finnish National Anthem.
Also this year, everyone who want to join the Torch Parade can do so.
ISYY welcomes you to join us in creating an Independence Day with a student outlook, but please leave your student overalls home this time!
