Excursion Stockholm-Helsinki 2013

The geographical excursion "Stockholm-Helsinki" of the research group Social Geography of the department of geography & geology at the University of Salzburg was taking place for 8 days in autumn 2013. From a socialgeographical point of view, citygeographical and cityecological topics were considered as well as aspects of economic and regional development on different scale levels, from the city quarter to the metropolitan area, and embedded into global contexts.

A holistic perspective of socialgeographic phenomena was facilitated through the transfer of acquired theories on locally observable phenomena. Furthermore, practical analysis of current relevant socialgeoraphic questions was enforced, which could be answered together with local experts. It was the aim to solve little daily exercises during the course of the excursion that enabled the reproduction of newly acquired knowledge.

The reader of the excursion on several relevant topics is available for download here. It was made by the participants to prepare before the excursion itself and shows different approaches to socialgeographical issues in Stockholm and Helsinki.

Additionally, a photo contest has been conducted, to present the subject related content of the excursion in an illustrative manner.
