DesignEDly is a space where young people take problems in their hands and find ways to solve them with their ideas and passions. 
Working between schools and outside organizations, we facilitate team co-creation opportunities, technological access and instruction, professional mentorship, and collaboration with actors supporting innovation and entrepreneurship.
"Love The Problem" Course In 2018 DesignEDly is launching a 6-month "Love The Problem" course for schools and their students which includes skills-oriented hands-on workshops, team facilitation and milestone events.

Our collaborators
Our team Say hello hello@designedly.org
Partnerships aleksandra@designedly.org Course content max@designedly.org As a global society we have big problems to tackle. The difficult process of change starts with people - their attitudes, courage, knowledge, and tools to face that change and implement new solutions. 
Co-creation is a way to find peaceful common ground and move forward toward building shared agendas. We are a team brought together by a desire to change the world through education. We have all benefited from Helsinki's subculture of innovative change makers and are working to extend this vibrant community to include even younger students in Finland and around the globe. Our own schooling lacked a connection to real life outcomes, lacked freedom and creativity and this is still the reality for most students around the world. We aim to challenge companies and schools to do things differently.
