The future of cities will be widely featured during Helsinki Design Week. Design thinking has become an integral part of the city’s development work over the last ten years. Design has supported the development of public services, helped build the city’s image and solved urban problems. Together with the Design Driven City project, a series of events and workshops held over 5.-9.9. will present the lessons learned and find inspiration for the future of urban design.
 
The programme includes the City Design Meet-up, the launch of Kaskas Media’s Design Stories web publication, the gathering of the member cities of UNESCO Creative Cities, a peek into the Espoo metro extension, and the British innovation charity Nesta’s workshop on the identification of systemic problems in cities.
