Nomaji wants to promote research based practice. Our goal is to share our expertise and knowledge as efficiently as possible within the office and with our partners. That is why we have started to organize monthly science afternoons. The science afternoons are open and free events.

(Mustikkamaanpolku 12)

Science afternoon moves outdoors in honor of the upcoming summer! After an introduction to the topic, we will explore the valuable meadow of Mustikkamaa. Amidst discussion and questions, there will also be an opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the area’s flora and learn to identify plants.

Is it worthwhile to maintain open areas as meadows? How long does it take for the species to adapt? Can real traditional biotopes emerge in cities? What are the challenges in meadow management? Is it worthwhile to design meadows in cities? What could be the most effective way to create new meadows?

Representing the experiences of the City of Helsinki and participating in discussion are nature planner Hanna Tuovila from Nomaji, who prepared Helsinki’s first meadow inventory and management guidelines, and environmental expert Hanna Seitapuro, who has been monitoring meadow development in Helsinki’s environmental services for years.

Please remember to register for the event.
