Aalto Alumni Impact
Encompassing keynotes and hackathon-style group challenges, the Aalto Alumni Impact shall seek to create actionable initiatives for climate change and sustainable development.
Aalto University has committed as a first university in Finland to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, thus we’ll collect from the Finnish influencers challenges that multidiciplinary alumni groups will solve.
