Topic outline

  • Welcome

    Welcome to the home page of the course 21E12002 Creative Sustainability Capstone! Here you can find general information about the course. If you become interested and would like to be admitted to the course as a student, please follow the instructions below.

    During the course students work in multidisciplinary teams towards finding creative solutions to real-life social and environmental challenges brought by client organisations. This year we are proposing projects with the following organizations:

    • Compensate Foundation (Critical steps for individual’s CO2 compensation to become an essential tool in the fight against climate change)
    • Elisa Oyj (Strategy execution - Elisa is trustworthy corporate citizen)
    • Fazer Lifestyle Foods (Consumer behaviour towards plant-based eating)
    • KPMG (Defining Corporate Citizenship strategy at KPMG Finland)
    • LiiKe – Sports and Development and PBL East Africa (Using Physical Education as a lever to improve health and learning outcomes in Tanzanian Schools)
    • Posti Group (Developing sustainability communications)
    • Qheat (Market entry in the energy industry)
    • Smart & Clean Foundation (Measuring and scaling up impacts of change projects)

    The team members are expected to work intensively together during the course. They will also be meeting with the representatives of the client organizations. Each team will receive a tutor to guide them during the projects. The class will come together for five mandatory contact sessions over the course of the Capstone. Other than this, there will be no organized contact sessions, but teams may use the course hours indicated in Oodi for team meetings, client meetings and tutoring sessions.
