Finland issues Climate change stamps

During the remainder of the year, Posti (The Finnish Post Office Corporation) will issue eight stamp sets with a total of 17 different stamps. The themes of the stamps to be issued in September are climate change, graffiti, urban parks and Finnish nature symbols. Three traditional Christmas stamps will be issued in November, along with a stamp suitable for winter greetings.

The three stamps in the climate change stamp sheet depict the dramatic effects of climate change that are expected in the near future if we allow the climate to continue getting warmer at the current rate. The particular focus of the stamps is the effect of climate change on Finnish weather conditions, nature and society.

The stamps, which are designed by Timo Berry, are made with heat-pressed ink that will change color when touched with a finger. By touching the stamp with your finger,

you can see what we can expect in Finland if the constant warming of the climate is not brought under control.

The Climate change stamp sheet, which will be issued on September 12, contains three domestic no-value indicator stamps.
