Tamy's Environmental Days 19-21 Nov: Let's stop the climate change!
How can we slow down the climate change and who should take responsibility? Tamy's Environmental Days want to prompt discussion about climate change from different viewpoints and seek answers to the biggest environmental problem of our time. The topic is discussed in lectures, workshops, panel discussions, excursions and other forms of sharing information.
Tamy was born on 22 November 1925. The Student Union celebrates their anniversary every 5th year with anniversary celebrations and in between with annual birthday parties. The birthday celebration is a Thank You to the people who have been actively involved in Tamy's operation during the year, such as student representatives and associations, and a reason to bring all students together to party. Tamy celebrates their birthday annually since 2011. The next anniversary celebration will be held in 2015.
In 2013 the Student Union of the University of Tampere celebrates their 88th birthday!
Tamy wishes to thank everyone involved for making the year 2013 a great one! You are invited to celebrate Tamy's 88th birthday on Friday 22 November in Restaurant Bricks (Hämeenkatu 18) from 9 p.m. onwards!

The climate is changing, the Arctic ice is melting, the sea level is rising, extreme weather is becoming more and more common. According to a newly published report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change our planet is warming even more rapidly than previously calculated, and to cut down carbon dioxide emissions more powerful action must be initiated.
How can we slow down the climate change and who should take responsibility? Tamy's Environmental Days want to prompt discussion about climate change from different viewpoints and seek answers to the biggest environmental problem of our time. The topic is presented in lectures, workshops, panel discussions, excursions and other forms of sharing information.
The Environmental Days are all about fact and action - join in to learn about contributing to stopping the climate change!
Wishing you a warm welcome, Anni Heinälä, Environmental Days project secretary
