Join the Open Forum at Nordic Edge Expo organized by Forum Virium Helsinki to hear concrete cases from urban labs and bring your own reflections to the table.

The session explores three approaches for co-creating urban innovation from Helsinki’s innovation districts:

  • Participatory futures mapping for co-visioning and road-mapping
