III Coming Up

You Tell Me Evening School – Direct Action 

How could we use non-violent direct action to demand a more responsible way to build our cities? In this evening school we will have guests from Elokapina – Extinction Rebellion Finland to talk about climate activism and civil disobedience. After an introduction to Elokapina we’ll open a facilitated conversation about the possibilities of non-violent direct action in the field of architecture and built environment.

For the conversation we have invited Elisa Lähde, Professor of Landscape Planning and Ecology at Aalto University and Panu Savolainen, Professor of History of Architecture at Aalto University, both of them also active in Elokapina. We welcome all the participants to join the discussion as well.

At the end we would love to form an affinity group for the built environment under Elokapina for people interested to act towards a more responsible way to build our cities. This event will be a great way to start your own activism, join Elokapina or just be curious and listen about the topic!

What: Introduction to Elokapina – Extinction Rebellion Finland and facilitated conversation about the possibilities of non-violent direct action in the field of architecture and built environment with guests from Aalto University architecture faculty.

Where: The evening schools will be hosted at the Museum of Finnish Architecture. Please remember to sign up beforehand by 17:00 on 24.11. The sessions will not be recorded. Sign up to the event: https://forms.gle/SZQUQcbn2sE3nudT6

When: Wednesday 24.11.2021 18:00–20:00

The Singthrough of the Guild’s songbook Musta Neliö 30.11.
It’s almost Wähäjoulu! Time to warm up for the big day by singing!
The 3rd Edition of the songbook of the Guild of Architecture Musta Neliö was published in 2020, and it’s time to see what it holds inside it. We’re singing through the whole book at once!
It’s going to be a long night, but the singers are being taken care of by serving them some glögi to lubricate their throats. You’re welcome to come drop by even if you can’t stay for the whole night.
The 3rd edition of Musta Neliö can be purchased at the event for the price of 6€.
WHAT? The Singthrough of the Guild’s songbook Musta Neliö
WHERE? Pelitila, Jämeräntaival 3
WHEN? Tuesday 30.11 at 17–22
WHY? Because singing is the new black!
