Climate change challenges welfare states to change their practices. How do we steer that transition?
In 2020 and 2021 Aalto Design for Government course and ORSI Research project partnered-up to tackle sustainable change in the Finnish government. In this seminar, students will present proposals on how to use the design approach in two projects commisioned by the Finnish Ministries: "Reducing the carbon footprint of public procurement, using the Kela Maternity package example" and "Just transition to post-oil heating homes". The presentation will be followed by a moderated discussion on the role of design in government with the project representatives from the Finnish minitstries and public services.
We invite government key decision makers, civil servants, citizens and businesses around the same table to get inspired with us.
