The overall theme of the Living+ Forum 2019 is Inclusive environments, the study of creating environments that accommodate the needs of, and therefore feels welcoming to, everyone regardless of their physical, cultural or economic disposition.

During 7 sessions, experts from academic, public, private and NGO sectors present research, challenges and successes in their specific fields. The lectures, two per session, take place every Thursday afternoon for 6 weeks in the Undergraduate Centre at Aalto Campus.
