Introducing our first Service Design ‘train the trainer’ session! The Baltic2Hand project utilizes a Service Design approach in identifying and co-creating solutions for reducing textile waste and improving textile circularity in the Central Baltic region and is thus at the very backbone of our project. Service Design approaches involve a range of organizations, consumers, experts, and other stakeholders in co-creating carefully designed and industry-tailored solutions in a more comprehensive manner.

In this first Service Design session Krista Keränen from Vision Factory introduces us to Service Design and Design thinking, and how these approaches can benefit service development.

The Baltic2Hand project has carried out extensive desk research and interviewed several textile and fashion organizations in the Central Baltic region to map out the challenges and potential opportunities in the industry. One of our key focus areas also includes consumer behavior trends regarding their use and consumption of textiles.

These materials were created in the Baltic2Hand project which is an Interreg Central Baltic Programme 2021–2027 project that is co-funded by the European Union. Read more about the Baltic2Hand project.
