The faculty organisation of Biological and Environmental sciences – Biosfääri (biosphere) is an umbrella organisation founded at 2010. This yet quite young, but effective organisation is here for providing educational lobbying, activities and happening during the year and helping its member student organisations to keep in touch. Biosfääri is a multicoloured bunch of students from major subjects different kinds in the University of Helsinki. Most of our students are from the sciences related to biology and environmental sciences – but we really wish to meet new people all around the world and from all kinds of major subjects! Biosfääri’s “home” is the club room located in Biocenter 1. Come and have a cup of coffee with us anytime!

You can follow us on Facebook. Also check the event calendar  once in a while! If you find any questions or comments, please contact Biosfääri’s international representative 2018, Mirjami Kuutti.
