The theme of Tempaus is now clear: increasing the appreciation of volunteer work in Finland

The Tempaus Order of the engineer with a sturdy beard, Sheryl Tokyo, and Kunniamursu was read at Aalto Open Air and the Declaration of Wappu Madness.

As the economy tightens, workplace productivity has become increasingly crucial. Nevertheless, we should not forget about work for which you cannot set a price. Volunteer work cuts across the entire Finnish society and has been evident in the community spirit throughout history. It also holds significant value. It is ultimately about caring for others and genuine altruism, which are also reflected in small daily acts. Many of us engage in volunteer work by donating blood, cleaning up litter from nature, or participating in sports club activities. In our view, volunteer work today does not receive the appreciation it deserves in society.

We invite the entire Aalto community to pay attention to all the volunteer work being done in Finland. Let’s bring up everyone’s efforts together! The preliminary dates for Tempaus are 21–27 Oct, when we will mobilise in large numbers to campaign within cooperative associations.
