In this conference researchers from different disciplines of the University of Oulu present their research from the perspective of Summer. What does the summer season mean for microentrepreneurs or archaeological research? What happens in our forests during summertime when bees work hard to thrive and when berries ripen day by day? How is climate change visible in the Finnish summer and can its effects be mitigated with successful urban planning?
