Public lecture

At worst, an oil spill can disturb hundreds of kilometres of coastline. The current situation is alarming, and the consequences far-reaching – explanations are needed for why these accidents happen!

The free public lecture on the reasons for and consequences of oil spills is held on Tuesday 9 March from 12.30pm to 15.30pm at the Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences.
