Design offers tools and new perspectives that would not be found otherwise. It can help make a difference in every field. That is why Aalto University wants all students to have access to design education. Here are some case examples on how it can be done!
Design Inside showcases cutting-edge research and projects
Aalto University is one of the main content partners for Helsinki Design Week with the aim to widen the understanding of design. With the Designs For a Cooler Planet event the university can show in practice how collaboration between designers, researchers and stakeholders can lead to better solutions for society and the environment.
‘Especially in these days it is important to find ways to share and showcase with real samples of what type of research is done in the university’, emphasizes Enni Äijälä.
Helsinki Design Week at Otaniemi showcases inspiring future designs related to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Collaboration between designers, researchers and stakeholders can lead to better solutions for society and the environment.
