Help cool down the planet with Narratiimi walking collective


I Finland är energiförbrukningsnivån för närvarande fyra gånger högre än vad som anses vara hållbart. För att nå en hållbar nivå måste vi göra väsentliga förändringar inom de kommande tio åren i hur vi rör oss, var vi bor och vad vi äter.

Aalto-gallerierna över Otnäs kommer att visa upp elva tvärvetenskapliga utställningar; från framtida hemvaror och ekologiska lyxtextilier till ett koldioxidfritt stadsdistrikt.
