An invitation to design our common future

When reports scream “We have to get climate change under control”, the public waits for the sentence to continue. How? When? Who will do it?
It will be done through our common will, interactions and substantial actions, in an atmosphere where everybody can learn from each other. Academies, institutions, experts, students and entrepeneurs -dialog creates action. Together we can create a learning climate in Finland, where ideas and innovations bloom.

The Design for Sustanability Summit is a networking event for operators in a sustainable development.

Showcase your company as a concrete actor in sustainable development, or get inspired and find solutions and partners for your business to be able to take the next step towards more sustainable operations.
