What should the University do as a part of the 2026 European Capital of Culture?

Oulu is applying to be the European Capital of Culture in 2026. The bid is due in 2020, and now different actors in Oulu have a chance to influence the contents of the action plan included in the application.  We are also looking for interesting ideas from inside the University community for ways that it can take part in the Oulu2026 campaign. There is a link below where you can submit your ideas.  


The Oulu2026 campaign is accepting content and project proposals to be included in their bid to become the European Capital of Culture. The programme proposals should be in line with the bid’s main theme, which is “Cultural Climate Change,” and one of its sub-themes: “Hinterland,” “Contrasts,” and “Wild City.”  


We are looking for ideas within the University for how it could partake in Oulu’s year as the European Capital of Culture. Submit your ideas by the 30th of April through the link below.  



You have the chance to influence The University of Oulu’s presence in the Oulu2026 process.  

Let’s act and succeed in this together.
