After analysing the data for daylight and weather in the region, we noticed natural rhythms that affected impressions of the environment on campus. For example, one challenge is that term times at Aalto University don’t occur during the warmest, brightest days in summer when students don’t need encouragement to spend time outdoors. There is a reluctance to go outside in less favourable conditions even though term times avoid the wettest, darkest periods. However, despite Finland’s reputation for darkness and poor weather, Otaniemi lies on the southern coast. Therefore, it benefits from slightly better weather. As a result, it means that by closely aligning our interventions with the natural cycles, we can take advantage of better climatic conditions when they do come. Potentially, students would not only be encouraged to seize the opportunity to go outdoors, but also experience a nice surprise that could lead to a collective sense of celebration.
