Danish School of Media and Journalism: Hackathon

CONTEXT

The Ministry of Immigration and Integration was looking for innovative ways of combating radicalization on the internet. They collaborated with the Danish Media and Journalist High School, to host a hackathon for the students and stakeholders from the outside.

The project was funded by the Ministry of Immigration and Integration with PET, the Media Council for Children and Young People and the International Recruitment and Integration Board, and a selection of young community-minded citizens with different backgrounds as other collaborators.

JOURNEY

The students first worked for three weeks, and did a deep dive to understand the problem in depth. The students generated insights, that was used as the foundation for a three day hackathon. We worked with the school to design and facilitate the hackathon. Students and external stakeholders, worked in groups and presented 10 final concepts to the client. Two of the concepts were selected and further developed. 

RESULTS

  • 10 final concepts presented
  • 2 concepts further developed to be implemented in collaboration with the ministry
  • The entire project was an effective way for the school, the students and the group of stakeholders to learn more about processes of collaborative innovation

Stendahls: Envisioning the Next 60 Years

We helped Stendahls develop a shared vision for the future. In 2014 Swedish communication agency Stendahls, has been around for exactly 60 years. In October 2014 we worked with them to look ahead to their next 60 years. During two active days, all 100 people of Stendahls created a shared vision, that will guide the strategy and inspire innovation at every level. Rather than a destination, Stendahls shared vision will be an ongoing conversation throughout the company around vision, purpose, values and how Stendahls can make a difference in the world around them.

Danish Ministry: Co-creating a Strategy for Public Private Partnerships

We were assigned to facilitate a strategy development workshop for Erhvervs- og byggestyrelsen (Danish Enterprise and Construction Authority) for some 80 managing directors from the municipalities, the regions and private companies. The aim was to develop new ideas, and discuss how the government’s strategy for enhancing public private collaborations could be strengthened. The outcome was a charter describing the outcomes from the workshop, and lots of important connections were formed. We teamed up with design agency UiWE and delivered a coherent communication package including venue design, workshop templates, documentation, film and website.
