The workshop proceeds with a facilitated ideation session. The participants will be divided into small groups consisting of clients, students, representatives of companies and associations. The groups will co-create ideas for new digital wellbeing solutions.  The best idea will be awarded.

We also invite companies and other organisations to give a 2-min pitch in the end of the workshop. If you are interested in pitching, please send the description of your innovative digital wellbeing solution to kirsi.ronkainen@laurea.fi by the end of March. We reserve the right to limit the number of pitches.

Join the workshop to listen to the everyday challenges of the clients. Pick up all the ideas, and develop them further to launch new digital wellbeing services!
