To solve the problems of today and the future, we need better ideas all the time that will inspire us and make our lifestyle more sustainable. With the help of the Makanatsu innovation game, we can train our ability to open-mindedly develop new ideas.

In this game, we compete for who has the best idea and the most convincing way to present it. As inspiration, each player or group receives four random words from a deck of cards. However, time is limited!

Your idea can benefit humankind or fix a problem, start a new company or consider, amaze, help or just inspire.

Makanatsu is a game of innovation. It was created by the Swedish agency GoTo Future. Its forest version was produced in cooperation with Science Centre Pilke.

Recommended age range: 7-13 years


This event is part of the Children’s Design Week programme at Annantalo. See the complete programme here.
