The Development Cooperation Week “From Stories to Action” organized by the Student Union of the University of Tampere (Tamy) on 8-12 October 2012 brings development cooperation to the University of Tampere campus in a positive and engaging way. Tamy’s Development Cooperation Week is part of a national project funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, which aims to raise awareness of development cooperation among students. The project’s underlying message is that development cooperation is everyone’s responsibility.
Tamy’s approach to this year’s theme, development cooperation and human rights, emphasises the humane aspects of the project. Check out the week's programme on its webpage.

Environment Days 22–24 November 2011: Nature and creativity in urban areas
Who do urban spaces belong to? What constitutes nature in an urban setting? How do people move in the city and why? What happens when nature and culture meet in an urban environment?
This year, Tamy's Environment Days focus on urban nature and environment. The Environment Days strive to offer new perspectives on urban spaces and urban nature through e.g. art and action. Read more here.

Consumption and development – national Development Cooperation Week in Tampere 3–7 October 2011
Tamy's Development Cooperation Week is back! This year, the DC Week is held nationwide with the theme of consumption and development. The DC Week in Tampere is called “Buying: A Clean Conscience” and our approach to the theme is through consumption in the Western world. Is the consumer responsible for the ethicality and sustainability of trade? Is it possible to make a change by consuming? How much responsibility can be given to the market forces, and how much should states steer the course of consumption and development?
In addition to an excursion, there's a whole bunch of fun events: an African dance lesson, a party, a chocolate afternoon, a movie night, etc... The whole programme can be found on the DC Week website here. More info is also provided in the kick-off event “Clothes off!”, which is arranged in front of the Main Building on Monday 3 October at 2 p.m. Entertaining the crowd are the improv group NääsImpro and the dance group NääsDance. The event is carried out with Tampere Red Cross's recycling shop Kontti.
