Campaign challenges everyone to read for an hour on the 8th of September.

Read Hour

A Finnish initiative, Read Hour campaign, will culminate on UN Literacy Day on 8 September 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.
