Behind Kolme - Tuomo
I'm Tuomo Kondie or Kondien Fed'a, the chairman of Karjalazet Nuoret Suomes.
We organize cultural events and activities for young Karelians living in Finland and also try to improve Karelians' status in society.
Why is the Kolme project important for young Karelians in Finland?
When you're part of a minority it can be at times lonely and wearsome living in a world built on majority's terms. It can be empowering to meet other minorities to see that we're not alone with our experiences. Meeting others and learning from one another can be also inspiring and help come up with new ideas. And of course it's fun to meet new people, see new places and learn about other cultures! There's rarely an overabundance of nice and enjoyable things in life.
