2020 Final Show – in videos, slides and pictures!

The 2020 Final Show of Design for Government (DfG) showcases new ways that multidisciplinary design can address policy-making and public-service provision!

DfG’20 included 6 highly-committed and talented student teams addressing challenging projects commissioned from within the Finnish government. This year, students have addressed two project briefs: First up at the Final Show were the teams dedicated to “Boosting Climate Education,” a project from the Ministry of EnvironmentMinistry of Education and CultureFinnish National Agency for Education, and ORSI research project/consortium. Next were the teams committed to “Just Transition to Post-Oil Heating in Homes,” a project from the Ministry of Environment and ORSI research project/consortium

Below is documentation of the DfG’20 projects. 2020 was the first online and global Final Show! Documentation includes videos of the presentations, presentation slides, each team’s final report, as well as pictures of the Final Show.
