The event offers new perspectives on tolerant multiculturalism, development cooperation, global issues and expanding one's possibilities for affecting everyday life.


The main organiser of World Village Festival is the Service Centre for Development Cooperation - KEPA. It is the umbrella organisation for nearly 300 development organisations or other NGOs working on issues concerning development and globalisation. KEPA itself is a politically and ideologically non-aligned organisation that operates with funding from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.

Over 300 other partners are involved in the festival – some 200 NGOs as well as educational institutions, museums, public authorities and businesses.
