Read Hour

Only one in four young people consider reading cool – Read Hour challenges to read for an hour on UN Literacy Day

The Read Hour campaign spreads from 1 September to 8 September. It will culminate on UN Literacy Day on 8 September at 19:00 for a reading hour throughout Finland and beyond. The aim of the Read Hour campaign is to instil a new festival dedicated to literacy and to raise the topic of declining reading, especially among young people.
