Oasis of Radical Wellbeing researches the wellbeing of Aalto people, gathers wellbeing knowhow from around and outside Aalto, and spreads and curates information about holistic wellbeing as an essential part of the Aalto everyday life - of the students as well as teachers and all Aalto staff.

We think that contemplative practices and a dialogue about wellbeing are needed both on personal level as well as as a part of our systemic thinking. This is essential also for the sake of inclusivity, equity and diversity in Aalto.

Especially at these times it is essential that we all take care of the safe space of all the members of our community - that of our own, and that of everybody else.

Wellbeing needs to be part of the pedagogy of the institution... integrated into the overall functioning of the university.
