The 112 Day will be celebrated again on 11 February
112 Day is a Finnish nationwide campaign to raise people’s awareness of what everyday safety is and how it can be promoted. 112 Day has traditionally been a joint event for different safety authorities, organisations and volunteers. Every year, local events are organised across the country and people are actively campaigning on social media.
In 2022, the theme for the campaign is “Feeling safe and secure together”. Feeling safe and secure comes from our sense of security, which can be seen as how our fears and concerns about accidents, crime and similar issues affect our well-being.
How to participate
Local events are an important part of the 112 Day campaign. However, due to the current coronavirus situation, you can participate in the theme day online or without an audience.
The campaign enables safety actors, schools, workplaces, clubs and associations to share valuable safety information to contribute to people’s sense of security. What’s more, we can all improve our own and our loved ones’ safety by paying attention to small everyday actions and choices.
112 Day also reminds us of the European emergency number 112 and of what to do in an emergency.
Share your safety knowledge on social media using the hashtags #112paiva, #112dagen and #112day.
