Weekly Digest 19/22

Is it autumn already??

Hello once again, Weekly Digest is back from summer break! To iterate, Weekly Digest

1) is published once a week (Monday / at the beginning of the week)

2) briefly introduces upcoming events and activities to which all guild members are welcome to attend

3) helps keep your calendar up to date with these upcoming events

4) is written by the guild’s publicist / me. I study my third year in landscape architecture, and I started as a Guild of Architecture’s Publicist in January. Besides from writing the Weekly Digest I’m the responsible person for guild’s social media accounts and communications committee. (Sorry about the inactivity – I’ve been taking some time off from guild work before the first semester!)


The Weekly Digest is a ”slower” media for following news in the guild. That’s why I recommend joining guild’s Telegram announcement channel, where you’ll reach news about events and other announcements in time. The channel’s official languages are Finnish and English.

Have a nice beginning of the fall semester!
