Aalto on Tracks
In 2010 Aalto on Tracks took 80 people from the Aalto University community with a private train from Helsinki to Shanghai World Expo, China, on May 2010. That’s over 10 000 kilometers and a week on tracks! The goal was to take Aalto University, Finland and Finnish education to the world. We wanted to unite Aalto people and create an unforgettable learning experience for around a hundred Aalto people and guests.
