24.-26.05.2012 / 09:00 - 17:00
The Cumulus Conference will follow the overall theme of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 theme “Open Helsinki – Embedding Design in Life”. The conference will dig in the theme by asking questions like how design knowledge can support public services in the development of open, participative city environment.

Cumulus Helsinki 2012 will be an open and wide forum inspiring all Cumulus members and interest groups into lively discussion and exchange of ideas of how design tools can improve the development of cities and the quality of life.
