Event Information

Date: Wednesday January 27, 2021
Time: 9:00–10:00 am (UTC+2)
Location: Online

Over the past decades, we have experienced crises that permanently changed our perception and experience of our world: 9/11, the rise of extremism, polarization in politics, and Covid-19. Additionally, digitalization, social media power, and the rise of sustainability have and will transform our daily lives and business significantly.

How to build security and trust when all seems to be under constant change and new threats arise? How does Finland position itself in the global scenery?

Welcome to get new perspectives on global security in this topical webinar organized by Aalto EE. The speakers are globally acknowledged experts Dr. Mika Aaltola, Director, Finnish Institute of International Affairs and Dr. Jarno Limnéll, Professor of Practice, Aalto University.

We will approach the topic from different viewpoints and learn about the enabling forces that build trust and resilience in societies and globally.

Furthermore, we will get some glimpses of the future: what are the possibilities ahead of us, and what professionals and executives can do to build a more secure and trustworthy business environment and society to work and live in.


The webinar is hosted by Dr. Riitta Lumme-Tuomala, Head of Growth, Aalto EE
