On May Day, Wednesday 1 May, it’s time to rest. So we will gather at Harju from noon to 5 pm. for a collective picnic. All university students and university of applied sciences are warmly welcome to join us!

A slope from the Harju stairs (Nero’s stairs) to the Normaalikoulu is reserved for the picnic.

The public toilets on the 1st floor of the Harju Tower are available for the participants. Here is a Google Maps link showing the location of the Harju Tower. Trash bins are located at the corner of Yliopistonkatu and Oikokatu.

– The ridge walkways must be kept clear throughout the event as well as the stairs. The Harju stairs are not part of the event area.
– There will be a portable toilet on the ridge for participants.
– You may bring your own food and snacks. We recommend bringing a tarp or blankets!
– No open fire.
– JYY will distribute garbage and bottle bags for the picnic participants. If you are too tired to take them to the shop, you can bring them to the JYY info tent at the end of the picnic. Please deliver the rubbish bags to the rubbish bins. Before leaving, please check that your own place is tidy!
– In the park, there will be security officers and stewards in the public area to help you in case of emergencies or disturbances. The security officers will also act as trusted persons at the event.
– The area is accessible, but we do ask that people with reduced mobility use the Harju passageways. The ground on the ridge may still be soft.
– The best way to reach the Harju for people with reduced mobility is via the access route to the Normal School.

The event will follow JYY’s safer space policy, which you can read here. By participating in the event, you agree to abide by them.

We reserve the right to make changes.
