Sea in Distress -webinar

Time: 27th March 2020 at 1 pm to 2 pm
Place: Digital discussion, link: https://zoom.us/j/136501550

The physical event Sjö i nöd – Meri hädässä – Sea in Distress at Hanaholmen – Hanasaari on 27th March 2020 is cancelled.

A digital discussion with professor Julia Lohmann from Aalto University will replace the physical event. The main language for the webinar is English, but you can comment or ask questions also in Finnish and Swedish. We hope that this webinar with professor Lohmann will help us in organizing a better Sjö i nöd – Meri hädässä – Sea in Distress physical event, perhaps already in the late fall of 2020.

Designing beyond ourselves is the topic of prof. Lohmann’s talk during the webinar!

Julia Lohmann is Professor of Practice in Contemporary Design at Aalto University and founder of the Department of Seaweed. She will introduce her work in design, education and research and show how it connects science, nature and culture at different scales from molecules to ecosystems. Lohmann will discuss the importance of an empathetic, collaborative and more-than-human mindset in addressing the challenges of a world in climate crisis, in particular those relating to the sea.
