The Doomsday Appro is coming!
For centuries the prophets have been predicting doomsday. None of them have been right with the prediction. Student Union TUO has its own prophecy and it takes place on 14th November. Will it be the Flood, a demolishing meteor or perhaps a nuclear explosion?

You can collect your appro map near Turku Cathedral at Gastropub Löytö and start collecting stamps from the marked bars. Let’s embrace the spirit of Doomsday Appro!

With 10 stamps Taivaankappale (demolishing meteor) patch
With 13 stamps Vihankierre (nuclear explosion) patch
If you already have the Vihankierre patch you will get a brand-new one😉
The afterparty is held at The Kiwi, Aurakatu 6, at 10pm. You will get the patch that you have earned at the after party until 11.30pm.
