Save favourite 16 Oct October 2017

Engaged people. Flowing creativity. Future society.

You are valuable! As a student you possess current knowledge, exciting experiences as well as brilliant ideas for the future. For the third year in a row we invite you to take part in a creative idea workshop to solve challenges in our society. This year's challenge is presented by Kimatråd Jämtlands län and involves the topics climate, health and tourism.

We will start with an inspiring session together with Johnny Sundin, one of Sweden's most entertaining trend spotters. Johnny will open our eyes into our exciting future. He will also be your creative advisor during later parts of the workshop.

You work in teams together with other students from Mid Sweden University. Innovation advisors from Miun Innovation lead you and your team through your creative process . They give you tools that help you throughout the process, but these tools can also be helpful in your studies as well as your future career.  During the workshop you establish new contacts as well as get a valuable merit for your CV.

You and your team will present your idea during a conference held by Klimatråd Jämtlands län at 27th October.
