Topic exploration

Under the guidance of Demola's co-creation expert, you get to know your new teammates, team up and create your own working practices. Your project starts with getting to know the topic, and your team gets access to background material from previous projects.

Current state analysis

Your task is to understand the current situation of the topic and identify the factors that may cause changes in it. In addition, your goal is to recognize any signals that may indicate upcoming changes.

Future speculations

Your goal now is to envision the future state based on the current situation. Let your creativity run free and start thinking like a future shaper. Speculate and come up with innovative solutions for the problems that may arise in the future.

Demonstrating the Future

You will bring your future scenarios to life by creating demos of potential solutions and services. You will have the opportunity to showcase what the future could look like, regardless of obstacles, technological limitations, or development stage.

I enjoy connecting with other people who are not from the same area and field, and creating new things. I think Demola is a very great platform and, since I’m interested in education, I think this is a great idea to help students and other people to learn in a different way and to be closer to the work life.

I wanted more experience in interdisciplinary project work and real-life, tangible development of solutions with external stakeholders. I also wanted to practice what the design process is like in the real world and how to present novel ideas in an attractive, business- oriented way. And Demola delivered!

In Demola we focused on creating solutions that can and should be applicable and should happen in real life, concrete and implementable solutions that can have an impact. Those type of solutions that go way beyond than just making a new website or a nice social media page.
