Sorry, currently no activity. Please come back and check later.

Please come and join a new initiative called the
‘Conservation Film Screening’, which will continue throughout winter at the Metapopulation Research Group, University of Helsinki.

The idea is to show – at least once a month – a film/documentary that portrays key topics in conservation (climate change, deforestation, etc.). There will be a discussion once the screening is over.

As the screening is quite informal please think of bringing along some nibbles and drinks.

  1. Hi Susann,
    The movie sounds interesting. Have you got it or? We’d be screening it in January though. Please drop me an email and we can take this further.

  2. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who was conducting a little research on this. And he actually ordered me lunch simply because I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this matter here on your internet site.
