II Pastime activities


While shutting your lights might not have too much of an impact, the massivity of a joint effort does, if not in units of electricity, in raised awareness.

AYY is turning off our lights at our central office for WWF Earth Hour next Saturday, March 30, from 20:30-21:30, together with Aalto University and Aalto Campus & Real Estate. We participate this year with a climate theme, and encourage you to sign the national climate campaign ilmastoveivi2019.fi and join the students’ climate movement #FridaysForFuture and Otaniemi Climate strike.

If your choose to participate, and turn off your lights, we challenge you to spend your hour in the darkness creatively. Have a dinner in the dark, play hide and seek, go on a ghost walk, paint a painting!

Humans vs Zombies Spring 5.-7.4.

Humans vs. Zombies is a moderated game of tag where zombie players try to spread the infection by tagging human players. Humans can in turn protect themselves by hiding, fleeing or fighting back (using socks or foam gun darts to “stun” zombies). Exciting missions and quests will be available every day. Since teamwork is often the best strategy, players are guaranteed to meet new people.

Participation is completely free of charge. The organizers will provide the game scarf and special items for you. All you have to do is sign up, show up and play.
