Salo Stories

2017 Salo Stories, Finland. The pedagogical experiments of the EU funded “Urban Education Live” project took (mostly) place in the Finnish city of Salo. The town is well known — in Finland — as a town hard hit by globalisation: The production of Nokia phones took the city from boom to bust.

The main local partner was the high school and the first 3 weeks workshop used a twitter geo-mashup to map: A. “what is there’’ (empty) over a meeting with local NGOs to inspire B. “what could be there”. This led to C. “how to get there” where the students e.g. contacted the owner of a grain silo who thought it would be great with a climbing wall there.
