2022 Final Show

The Design for Government 2022 Final Show showcases inspiring examples of proactive and ‘designerly’ approaches to policy-making and public service provision. The event saw 6 talented and multidisciplinary student teams present their research and proposals responding to challenges within the Finnish public sector. This year, students addressed a record of two different project briefs, with three student groups addressing each brief.

This year, the multidisciplinary student groups showcased the work done on extremely topical challenges dealing with the biodiversity of Finland’s forests and the ongoing employment services reform. Our project partners include Kela, the Ministry of Finance, Metsähallitus and the Ministry of the Environment.

A summary of the 2022 Project Briefs can be found here. Below we have posted documentation of the DfG’22 projects. Documentation includes videos of the presentations and Q&A session, presentation slides, each team’s final report, and pictures of the Final Show.
