Design for Government 2023 - Final Show
Join us for the student work showcase on the Life event services for a dignified old age and the Accessible travel chains, in cooperation with the DVV, Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Transport.
Design for Government (DfG) is a 12-ECTS practice-based course within the Aalto University’s multi-school Creative Sustainability master’s program. Each year, course leaders invite Finnish ministries, public service agencies, and regional and municipal administrations to work together with students on 2-3 contemporary national-level policy challenges in Finland.
Projects are formulated as briefs, which are the basis for in-depth and practical development by 24-36 master’s students each year. Students apply to the course from across Aalto and other Finnish universities (through Finland’s “JOO” Flexible Study Rights Agreement). Each cohort includes a diversity of backgrounds and disciplines across design, arts, architecture, real estate, business, engineering, chemistry, futures research and social sciences disciplines.
