By incorporating a user-centred perspective, conducting systemic analysis, and fostering co-creation and engagement, we can transform the way we perceive and experience accessible transportation. In this last blog post we introduce our final solution, a comprehensive framework capable of achieving this transformation.
When putting together the puzzle, we are always trying to find a special piece from tons of them, the perfect one, the one with semi-round shapes to reach in all four directions. When thinking about our proposal for having accessible travel chains, we Urban Drifters felt were putting together a large puzzle.
This post explores a comprehensive proposal that strives to equip The Ministry of Transport and Communications (LVM) with a resilient framework centered around collaboration. This multilayered structure is purposefully designed to endure and foster a renewed perspective on accessibility among all the organizations involved in Finland’s public transport travel chain.
In collaboration with the Digital Population and Data Services (DVV) and the Ministry of Finance (VM), we explored the trends surrounding Finland’s diverse and aging population. As a result, we propose Tomorrow Together – a four stages-framework that adopts a life course perspective through predictive governance and multi-party collaboration into policy making.
The public transport system in Finland has issues with working with each other. What is needed is to create a structure for collaboration. Together with the Ministry of Transport & Communications (LVM), Traficom, and the service providers HSL and VR, group 2A looks closer at how to achieve effective collaboration to ensure accessibility in the public transport system.
This post provides an overview of the reflections we are currently carrying out in the context of imagining a design intervention. Here I discuss about how we reframed our approach in order to emphasise the importance of self-reflection and how we used storytelling to convey a large amount of information in an accessible way. I then suggest that a possible part of the solution to this apparent structural problem may lie in a smaller scale intervention.
