Young people have a future
Young people in particular are concerned about the state of the planet and nature. So Visoko likes to listen to what young people think and
what to do about things:
• People need to be motivated to think
• Environmental laws are coming!
• Not all companies have the capacity to
• A greener future
• Nature does not need us, we need nature to live
Design Sprint, organized by the Circular Economy Goes East and West project of Laurea's young students, culminated in presentations of service concepts in June. Laurea's service design students developed a Better Future game and several other innovative ideas for Visoko's needs, which Visoko can use in the future to help its customers.
Visoko and Laurea in cooperation
The goal of a sustainable development game or tool is to familiarise the customer with the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals.
From Visoko's point of view, the cooperation involved assignment, the transfer of material related to blanks, interviews, exchange of ideas, the provision of answers to questions and the transfer of the necessary expertise to young people. To the young people's credit, they were eager to take up the project and were able to ask the right questions so that they could move forward in their work. They had a lot of insight and visions for the future. All four teams created the best ideas around sustainable development goals (SDG). Every blank is exportable to practice. The Design Sprint event was accompanied by presentations, best practice choices and competition on a tight schedule.
All the performances had made efforts as teams and brought out the business corners. What do companies need in this particular market and what are they willing to buy? Sometimes the simplest version is the most productive. Only the testing that has been put into practice to customers can ultimately prove that it works.
How to clarify the customer path?
Visoko can help its customers and provide a tool for promoting sustainability to raise awareness and information, in a fun and easy form. The digital format can attract customers of different ages and types and be positively surprising. At the same time, it will benefit other stakeholders. The gamified method of sustainable development can potentially be used in Visoko's online courses, trainings and workshops by linking to them. A visual, gamified and playful way can lighten the mood in an otherwise demanding topic. It can also motivate you to internalize the importance of SDG goals in practice.
Asking questions and giving answers is particularly suitable for Visoko's operating model. Visoko is of the opinion that, in order to see change, one must have the courage to ask questions and question questions.
Cooperation is the key to change
The cooperation left a positive vibe. This way is the right way to get topical and functional ideas launched into the business world. Visoko recommends cooperation and co-creation experiences with Laurea to other companies.
In addition to cooperation, perspectives of different ages and a diverse range of perspectives are needed in order to change things and enable sustainability and long life cycles. Cooperation with young people is a start where fresh perspectives are obtained. Young people are interested in what the world will look like in five years and 25 years' time.
And what will the world and nature look like in 60 years' time in the lives of grandchildren?
Exposure to nature pays off!
