Contents

Climate change, depleting natural resources, pollution and urbanization pose some of the greatest challenges in the history of humankind. Good solutions are needed now! These so-called wicked problems are so complex that they need actors from all levels of our society working together. Wicked problems are turned into wicked solutions only by strong collaboration between companies, universities, cities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). This means that future problem-solvers need to know how to work in the middle ground between the business, research and decision-making sectors. On Solutions.now course it is time to put the knowledge learned from books into practice by solving real life challenges related to sustainability issues. The challenges on the course are given by real companies, who want to make a positive impact with their business.

Much of today’s work consists of working in and leading multidisciplinary projects. However, practical project management courses and company collaborations are non-existent in many university studies. Solutions.now course combines problem- and project-based learning methods with sustainability issues, to let students learn the most critical project management skills while gaining valuable working-life experience. At the same time students learn valuable future skills such as tolerating uncertainties and conflicts and balancing with the knowledge learned from the literature and the frame given by the company.

This course is ideally taken after other sustainability courses so that the students already have some basic knowledge of the complexity of sustainability issues. This course offers a practical way to use that knowledge in real life as well as learn new skills in planning and executing sustainability projects. Students work in multi-disciplinary teams, each team dedicated to one sustainability project. They get to experience how it feels like to use their knowledge to make a positive impact on the world.

Additional information for students: previous knowledge etc.

A student has one or more of the following:

Degree student position in Master in Sustainability programme

Degree student in Business Administration Master program

The students discuss their answers in the beginning of the first contact day and a general discussion follows to make sure that there is understanding enough of the basics to begin the project work.
The project assignments are given on the first course day and the students operate in multidisciplinary teams with this development task during the contact days and the in-between weeks. Tools from service design, behavioural psychology and systems thinking are used to the drive the development forward and to make justified decisions and design at the end. The team results are presented at the end of the contact days. After that a final assignment is an individual written report about the teamwork results and their justifications and further development of the results and findings with pictures and diagrams.

Implementation and methods of teaching

Lahti Venture Program is a two-month program in which multidisciplinary student teams develop solutions for business challenges presented by companies operating in the Lahti region. Throughout the program, the students receive sparring from local company representatives and entrepreneurship experts. The program familiarizes students with different aspects of business operations: forming a business idea, charting customer needs, and commercializing ideas. It's an excellent opportunity to create contacts and build networks with top companies in the region, develop business know-how and get tools for future working life. LVP culminates in the Best Business Concept competition, where teams present their work to other participants and judges. Each member of the winning team will get a monetary prize. In addition, the students may acquire internships or jobs at the companies involved. The program is in English. It is for students from LAB University of Applied Sciences, LUT University, and the University of Helsinki. NOTE! Enrolment will end early if the total number of participants is reached before the end of the enrolment period.
