Suomenlinna, an inspiring location
Suomenlinna is a maritime fortress located off the coast of Helsinki, which was built starting in 1748. It is also a garrison town and a base for the archipelago navy. In 1991, the fortress was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List as a unique monument of military architecture. It offers a peaceful, concentrated study environment, but at the same time you're only a 15-minute ferry ride from downtown Helsinki.

With its theme so apt for Helsinki's WDC programme, the Sustainable Summer School has great expectations this year. It's hosted at Suomenlinna Fortress - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - and offers workshops in aesthetics, mobility, and simplicity. Register now and join in from August 25th to September 3rd.
