50 Years Later Solves Wicked Problems 

Technological development, digitalization, climate change, and the ageing of the population are examples of megatrends that create global, wicked problems. The workshop brings together experts of the Arctic area: the design students that are over 70 years old and have studied the change since the 1960s and those studying design now to solve the socially, economically, culturally and environmentally important wicked problems.
