Join the Open Forum to hear concrete cases from urban labs and bring your own reflections to table. The programme presents the newly published Tools for Urban Innovators, tried and tested in Helsinki’s urban labs. Three approaches for co-creating urban innovation from Helsinki’s innovation districts are introduced in the talks: futures mapping, agile piloting and design sprints for multi-stakeholder co-creation.

The programme consists of expert talks, and facilitated parallel discussions between all attendees. Join the urban innovators to be inspired!
