For the world

The University of Helsinki is a unique hub of science and thinking. As a multidisciplinary university, it seeks solutions to problems that involve each and every one of us.


The only way to secure a future for our planet is to mitigate climate change. To do so, we need research-based knowledge about what is happening on the ground, in the atmosphere and throughout our ecosystem.
