The seminar on thursday 19.2 10:00 is hosted by Tuija Seipell. Seminar offers superb speakers from companies like Innojok, Droplet Hitech Design, Kuljetus Kovalainen and Arctic Warriors. Topic of the day is to bring forth just how service design brings value to companies of different kinds. Morning is in Finnish, afternoon in English, free of charge! At the end of the day will also be announced the winners of this year's 24hr design contest "Hyvä elämä kylissä", sponsored by Kemijoki Oy.
Campfire talks occur everyday at 17.30. Don't miss this chance to sit down in the city and enjoy a good chat over a cozy camp fire. Dress warm though, these are outdoors, of course. Storytellers of all kinds will surely be seen at these. Maker's Lounge is a new event which aims to bring forth just what goes into the making of design. At the lounge featured several skills like ski-making and arctic coffee roasting!
