The 2018 Final Show of Design for Government showcases new ways that multidisciplinary design can address policy-making and public-service provision! 3 highly-committed and talented student teams present their research and proposals addressing a challenging project brief from within the Finnish government – this year, students have addressed a policy challenge from the Ministry of Forestry and Agriculture and Metsähallitus. The project brief, titled “Future of Finland’s Hiking Areas: New uses, users and identities”, explores and proposes futures for the hiking areas, a type of national land use with unique potential for economic, environmental and social sustainability.
