The University of Helsinki implements the principles of social responsibility on many levels. The project creates improved conditions for a better life and a better tomorrow. The project seeks solutions to environmental problems and develops ecosystem services for the needs of urban residents. The project creates new spaces, experiences, natural areas and sustainability amid the issues of climate change, as well as mental and physical well-being. Sustainable development is an ideology and operating model that grows increasingly effective through social discourse between urban residents and decision-makers.
Global environmental change – University of Helsinki designing a sustainable future
We aim to highlight the top- scientific research on the wide global environmental problems as well as the innovative solutions to solve them. The project themes are climate change, Baltic Sea and urban ecosystem services.
The core idea in this project is the dialogue between the citizens and decision-makers through the new innovative methods by using environmental and bio -art as media in science communication. Enhancing the use of results of environmental research in societal discussion and decision making form our society and thus, can be considered as design for the future.
