20/3 – 08:30-17:00 Hoffice at Storm

Welcome to set up office at Storm (Gäddan, Citadellsvägen 7). Bring your laptop and get started on that to-do-list in a distraction-free zone.

Inspired by the concept Hoffice, the day will be split into 45-minute silent working sessions with energizing breaks in-between. At the beginning of each session, everyone tells the group what they’re going to work on, and at the end of each session we check in with each other to see what we managed to get done.

Facebook event

28/3 – 17:00-20:00 Movie for Change: Tomorrow

This spring Storm invites you to Movie for Change – 5 individual movie nights all on the theme of sustainability. 

On the theme of Sustainable Development Goal number 9 – Industry, innovation and infrastructure we’re showing Tomorrow. As mankind is threatened by the collapse of the ecosystems, the filmmakers explore the world in search of solutions that can save their children, and with them, future generations. Using the most successful experiments in every area (agriculture, energy, habitat, economy, education, democracy…) they try to put back together the puzzle which may tell a new story of the future.

Guests for this evening to be announced.

Worried you’ll get hungry? Pre-order a dinner wrap from Café Vindstilla at self-cost. There is also a microwave available. Feel free to bring some snacks!

2/4 – 09:00-21:00 Stormathon

Problem solver. Team player. Innovator. Analyst. We know that sounds like you – but do you?

We now offer you the opportunity to participate in an intense, one-day innovation boot camp. Together with students from other programs, you get a case: a real case with the City of Malmö as a client and with sustainable cities and communities as the theme. You will work in tailor-made teams organized to complement each other’s strengths while being coached by experienced innovators and facilitators throughout the whole day. At the end of the day, you will pitch your solution with a chance to win the final prize.

9/4 – 17:00-19:00 Book release: Evidensbaserad stadsutveckling

Hur byggs en stad? Har vi allt tillgängligt vetande samlat när vi tar beslut som ändrar förutsättningen för livet i staden? Etnolog Joakim Forsemalm och pedagog Magnus Johansson har under flera års tid fördjupat sig i processerna som bygger våra städer. Deras nya bok Evidensbaserad stadsutveckling beskriver hur professionell kunskap om stadsutveckling kan balanseras mot både vetenskaplig kunskap och det kunnande som finns hos de som bor och verkar i stadsdelar.
