There is no Spoon – Wellbeing in the Age of Wicked Problems
The Department of Design’s introduction course for the new MA students focuses this year on the theme of wellbeing, the complex challenges and opportunities that design faces today and tomorrow. Design is now more thought as a strategic and public activity, where in the projects we recognise the needs of the other client, the humankind.
The course will address new knowledge on human behaviour, systems thinking, material lifestyles, happiness and the future. This intensive workshop is also the introduction to the 365 Wellbeing-programme, which is part of the Helsinki World Design Capital 2012 offerings.
