Hard Rain Goes Aalto

Young people today will be the first generation to have their lives significantly impacted by climate change and the depletion of natural resources. Are we heading inevitably towards hard times? Can we avoid a total disaster and see this as an opportunity to change the way we relate with the environment and build our societies?

Hard Rain goes Aalto will be a student-organized event in which we’ll learn about the state of global environment and share proposals and inspiration for action in the face of ecological crisis. In collaboration with the global Hard Rain Project, students at universities in the UK, Scandinavia and Australia will simultaneously launch similar events to understand the connections, follow the changes and have the right sort of evidence to influence the decision makers who need to be involved for change to happen.

Hard Rain goes Aalto includes: a one day seminar, a one day discussion series, and two art exhibitions showcasing the work and thinking of Aalto University students, researchers and guests.

When> 01/09/15 to 12/10/15

Where> Sampo Hall, Learning Center Beta, Node Gallery.

What> Seminar, Discussion, Exhibitions.


Hard Rain goes Aalto is part of the global Hard Rain Project.
