Combine motivation, will-power and conviction and great things can be achieved! To prove this Arcada University of Applied Sciences and 45 students join forces with adventurer Patrick “Pata” Degerman and a wheelchair athlete Aron Anderson during spring 2015. Our goal is to scale a 300 meter tall, perfectly vertical mountain wall in La Grave, France, after months of preparations in Helsinki, Finland. Not only is the expedition learning by doing at its best (what Arcada is all about). The adventure also gives all parties involved a chance to stand out, test and develop new products, methods and concepts. To help us we have a great team of experts, mentors and sponsors. So come on! It’s time for a new adventure!
Along the way we have had the help of co-operation partners and sponsors who believed in us and supported us when we set out to prove that nothing is impossible.Read more on our blog at inside.arcada.fi...
