Espoo, the second biggest city in Finland, launched a collaborative project called KYKY Accelerated Co-Creation and it’s powered by Fronter! Since its initiation, it has gained praise from around the globe.
The KYKY activity opens up schools and cities, turning them into living labs that support students’ learning and growth, while giving companies an environment to develop products and services to support learning. It recognizes that today’s companies lack real understanding of today’s school life, pedagogy and curriculum, and is creating a new operating model to overcome the challenge. So far, schools participating in the program have seen an increase in the digital skills of students and teachers, as well as their understanding of entrepreneurship as they rub shoulders with company employees.
