Colorful building block intertwined perfectly. Text says "DigiSus kickoff series. February 7th 9-12, February 22nd 9-12 and March 7th 13-16. Paidia Living Lab of Play, Nokia Arena. Join us in shaping a digitally sustainable future.
The new Digital and Sustainability Transitions in Society (DigiSus) research platform will begin its kickoff trilogy on Wednesday 7 February at 9-12 at Paidia Living Lab of Play, Nokia Arena.

The series of three workshops aim to start forming a community of interest and increase awareness of what is already happening in digitalization and sustainability at Tampere Universities. Each workshop will follow a similar agenda consisting of brief talks related to platform themes, discussion and workshopping around selected challenges/questions. The input from earlier workshops will feed into planning the latter ones, but each works as a stand-alone event.  

You are welcome to join any of the workshops, or even all of them! Just sign up at least a week in advance so we can plan the events sustainably. The first two workshops are now fully booked, but there's still space in the third, so secure your place soon.

You can find more information about the platform on the DigiSus website.
