Teekkari tempaus is an event that aims to raise public awareness of a certain (universally or locally) important issue. However, it is not a demonstration. Tempaus is associated with good-spirited distribution of information and activity with a teekkari fashion.
With tempaus, teekkaris aim to make a difference in the world but with a teekkari twist: with a twinkle in the eye, yet in earnest. Teekkari spirit is used to attract the attention of the general public to notice a fault or to change attitudes. Money may be collected for a good cause.
