UNU-WIDER at the World Village Festival 2023

What does the United Nations do around the world? What are the activities of different UN organizations? Are you interested in working at one of them? Come meet the UN organizations operating in Finland at the World Village Festival in Suvilahti, Helsinki on 27 and 28 May 2023!

At our One UN Finland tent you can find our staff, information on the UN organizations' work in Finland and globally, and thought-provoking activities. UNU-WIDER will be present in a tent together with five other UN organizations that have a presence in Finland: UN Association Finland, UNFPA/Väestöliitto, International Organization for Migration (IOM), UN Women, and United Nations Development Fund (UNDP).

Come meet us to discuss sustainable development, human rights, equality, sexual and reproductive health, and other important topics! The One UN Finland tent, T322, can be found next to the Market of Possibilities.
