Finnish Red Cross’ own event plaza Gimis takes over Kansalaistori in Helsinki city centre in June. Gimis is open on Tue 6th to Sat 10th at 11 am – 7 pm and on Sun 11th at 11 am – 4 pm. The six day long summer event showcases the multitude of Red Cross operations both in Finland and abroad.
Come refresh your first aid skills, find second hand bargains at Kontti’s pop up shop or peek into an actual emergency evacuation hospital used at catastrophe sites. Children can bring their favourite toy to be cared for at Teddy Hospital and take their first steps into the world of help and first aid.
During the week, the audience gets to hear interesting and topical discussions, enjoy entertaining music performances and participate both in morning exercise, first aid training and circus work shops! Coffee is served throughout the week.
Pop in for a moment or spend the entire day – welcome to Gimis!
The event is part of the Finnish Red Cross 140 years celebrations.
