WappuApu Fundraise

Loneliness is something that should not be a taboo. Especially during the corona pandemic, more and more students are struggling with loneliness. Together with the Fuksi Committee of the Aalto University Student Union, we want to provoke a discussion on an important topic and remind us to ask family, friends and, most importantly, ourselves, how it is going. In addition, we encourage you to participate in our WappuApu fundraising! By participating in the campaign, you support HelsinkiMission’s work to reduce young people’s loneliness and increase their well-being.

If you or a friend needs help, visit: helsinkimissio.fi/nuorten-kriisipiste . The Youth Crisis Point provides free and short-term conversational assistance with a crisis worker.

Design Challenge: Affordable Community Living in Smart City Kalasatama

The European Federation for Living (EFL), a European wide network of over 70 housing actors from 19 European countries, has just launched its first ever EFL Design Challenge: Affordable Community Living in Smart City Kalasatama in collaboration with Village Co-Living and Living in Metropolises (LiM).

This Design Challenge offers student teams around the world the chance to design a concept for a real site near the centre of Helsinki, Finland in the 175-hectare Kalasatama neighbourhood. The winning design will eventually be inhabited by a co-living community, brought together by Village Co-Living.

EFL is looking for interdisciplinary, co-creative student teams who want to push the limits of creativity and bring forth new ideas for sustainable urban communities on a real-life site.

The winning team will win a €4000 prize and their design will be implemented onsite. The runner up will win a prize of €2000. There is also an innovative thinking award of €500 and an undergraduate award of €500.
