Do Good - Give Back

Let's get together on this Global Service Design Day to celebrate and share our experiences on using design to give back.

Tough times call for courage. It takes courage to break the comfort zone and join efforts to serve a purpose bigger than ourselves - to design for good!

This year we will meet in person – yes, in person – to listen to fellow designers from SOLITA, SOK, FUTURICE, DIGITALIST, HELLON and LAUREA share their stories and inspire us on ways to find the courage to take the lead and use design to impact not only our lives and our communities, but our environment.

Let's explore together how to give back!


The event will take place from 17:00 to 20:30 at Kellohalli, Teurastamo.

Snack food and free drinks served for the first 120 people to arrive (first-come, first-served) ;) For the rest of the evening, you can get drinks from the Kellohalli bar and snacks from restaurants in Teurastamo.
