Youth Jukola message 2017

Tolerance means among other things respect for human rights. Tolerance in the everyday life can be carried out in several ways.

Public right of access is a right belonging to all Finnish residents and enables recreation and taking pleasure in the diversity of our nature through hobbies.

Sport has an essential role to play in the integration of immigrants and forms a great opportunity. Many immigrants moving to Finland finds the forest as an unfamiliar environment and reacts to it with fear. In adjusting with the forest, orienteering offers and constitutes a great possibility.

We have carried our message on the rocks of Kokonniemi, in order to support such measures by sports clubs, by which immigrants learn to enjoy the many recreational opportunities the Finnish forest nature offers.
