The world around is changing more rapidly than ever before. We find ourselves in the middle of sustainability crisis, technological change and revolutions of work. Never before has human kind encountered as fundamental challenges as climate change, plastic pollution or single use fashion.

With these changes, there is a risk that the most important can be forgotten. We feel lost and empty in front of faceless economy. Money defines our decision making even when more sustainable values such as humanity or planetary boundaries should be guiding the choices we make. To solve these challenges we need more than innovations. We need radical creativity.

We need new ways to see and change the world through creativity. Whether it is user centric design, new biomaterials, art, urban design, or health and well-being architecture, we challenge the decision makers to choose more wisely. We train the experts to challenge the norms and who are cabable to see the world as it could be. You can support this task with a donation.

Tuomas Auvinen: Radical creativity as culture

Creativity is experimenting, and therefore a valuable skill for us all to master in a constantly changing and complex world. Radical creativity does not appear overnight, but we can build capabilities for it, says Dean Tuomas Auvinen.
