Inari Virkkala contextualises the subject of mobility in the age of climate change and will discuss with the designer Gero Grundmann how we might and should think about mobility today.
She will also introduce the alternative travel fair 'Maata pitkin' that got inspired by the Swedish network 'Tågsemester' that has over 100 000 members.
