2017 Final Show – in videos, slides and pictures!

The 2017 Final Show of the Design for Government (DfG) course showcased new ways that multidisciplinary design can address policy-making and public-service provision! For an audience of 150, 4 highly-committed and talented student teams presented their research and proposals addressing challenging project briefs commissioned from within the Finnish government.

The theme ‘togetherness’ was in focus during this centenary year of Finland (Suomi100). DfG’17 addressed 2 project briefs – for the first time in DFG history, both project briefs involve multiple ministries! The 2017 project briefs are A Model for Regional Sustainable Circular Food and Civil Servant 2.0: Future work of civil servants. These projects demonstrate the ministries commitment to the kind of collaboration and crossover thinking necessary for addressing complex societal challenges.

Below is documentation of the 2 DfG’17 projects – including videos of the presentations, presentation slides, each team’s final report, as well as pictures of the Final Show.
