    Looking at TE-offices, KELA´s and municipalities civil servants, caseworkers, through the exercises at the DfG-course, storytelling, storyboarding and scenarios. From this work finding that appreciation could be the key of solving well-being issues and figuring out what kind of actions appreciation could be and how this can effect the reform and unemployment rate in Finland.
  • Switching our thinking hats
    The blog shares the transition from the research phase towards exploring the design intervention in efforts for finding means to establish a dialogue from our primary stakeholder (biodiversity) through a project brief by Metsähallitus and the Ministry of the Environment.
  • From Topdown Flow to Peer Collaboration
    This blog post explores our process of moving from the 3 main identified problem areas into some possible interventions. It is described how different frameworks allowed us to identify desired scenarios, in which learning happens collaboratively among peers rather than from a top-down approach. Some potential solutions are explored.
  • From problem areas to design intervention
    As a third update from the DfG course project, we will open our process working towards meaningful design intervention. Since the last post, we have moved from defining the problem to ideating the solution for improving the international jobseekers’ experience.
  • Design Intervention: Biodiversity board
    This blog post describes our process and steps of the last few weeks to get closer to our solution. We got inspiration in developing a design intervention that aims to improve shared understanding amongst Metsähallitus departments and preserve the biodiversity of national parks by applying the policy lab tool.
  • Navigating towards the intervention with scenarios
    By forming our user scenario, we can find inspiration in developing nudges that serve to improve the visitor experience and protect the biodiversity of national parks. This method of working not only connects us to the problem area we look to solve but helps us to get closer to our design intervention.
