The Reimari Youth Information and Counselling Service, TaiKon Basic Art Education, and the Vaasa Youth Council are mapping the local children’s and young people’s answers to these questions through a survey that will be open until 15 November 2023.
You can respond anonymously and more than once.
Survey responses are to be made into an exhibition and a performance
The anonymous answers will be used to create an exhibition in the Rewell Shopping Centre, opening on Saturday 18 November 2023 in connection with the Christmas Opening event. The exhibition will be open from 18 November to 17 December 2023.
The answers will also be used to create a presentation which will be presented during the Light–Ljus event on Children’s Rights Day on 20 November 2023.
The answers will also be shown on the social media channels of Youth Services and TaiKon. A summary of the results will also be communicated by the Vaasa Youth Council to the city’s decision-makers for their attention.
