Nordic PDC Place


Copenhagen, Denmark; Malmö, Sweden; Helsinki, Finland

Post-conference activities in September 2022 (26.-27.9.2022)

We will engage with academics and local communities in Copenhagen, Malmö, and Helsinki/Espoo. We will take the wider theme of participatory design in/for the digitalisation of public services as a point of departure, highlighting the potential role of public libraries and volunteering. We also aim to shape our activities in accordance with theoretical, methodological and practical contributions that emerge from the conference and share insights gathered from the conference. By organizing local events with local communities and organizations, we will introduce them to PD more globally. Likewise, by bringing them into activities related to PDC, which is generally more targeted at researchers and practitioners, we hope to contribute to opening up PDC to local actors. 

Researchers, practitioners and other local actors are welcome to participate in activities organized by the PDC Nordic organizers but are also welcome to suggest their own activities (e.g. as post-conference extensions to their own PDC workshops or situated actions). In the latter case, please inform the PDC Nordic organizers well in advance. A limited number of meeting rooms (12-20 people) will be available at the IT University of Copenhagen in Denmark and at Aalto University in Finland
