  • 1 min read

The Moomin #OURSEA campaign campaign has reached its goal of 1 million euros – a huge thank you to everyone who has participated in the campaign! As a thank you, we will livestream the beautiful “Haru, Island of the Solitary” documentary, which shows rarely seen footage of Tove Jansson’s summers on the Baltic Sea.

The Moomin #OURSEA campaign, launched in January 2020, has reached its goal of raising 1 million euros to save the Baltic Sea and its unique cultural heritage. The work is, however, not over yet, as the campaign continues until the end of July 2021. “We’re incredibly happy and touched by the number of organizations and private persons that have taken Baltic Sea and its well-being to their hearts. Never before has such a big international push been done in the Baltic region. Reaching the goal of one million euros makes it possible to make great deeds for the Baltic Sea,” comments Annamari Arrakoski-Engardt, CEO of John Nurminen Foundation.

We want to thank everyone who has taken part in the Moomin #OURSEA campaign by organizing a livestream of the rarely seen  “Haru, Island of the Solitary” documentary! The documentary, filmed by Tove Jansson’s life partner Tuulikki Pietilä, is a unique glimpse into Jansson and Pietilä’s summers on the small island of Klovharu on the Baltic Sea.

The livestream is organized on Wednesday, April 14th at 18:00 Eastern European Summer Time (EEST) . Register on Eventbrite to get the link to the livestream!
