The event joins together the Nordic cities and the Finnish 6Aaika. It’s a sign project to explore how to share the best practices on developing smart wayfinding and better city experience.

The first part of the day concentrates on wayfinding as an integral part of urban development, and how to tackle challenges for public private collaboration. The second part of the day focuses on understanding the users, data and digital means of designing better city experiences.

The event is produced in collaboration with the Nordic Urban Labs project and the Finnish 6Aika wayfinding project. Nordic Urban Labs is a collaboration project of the Nordic Network of Smart Cities financed by Nordic Innovation.
