Partner introductions continue!

We are happy to announce the remaining partners for the Digital Wellbeing Sprint 2021! Which partner would be the perfect match for you? 👀 👀 👀

Seniors in Shape project

The Seniors in Shape project aims to maintain the physical functioning of senior citizens. The goal of this publicly funded project is to unify and develop the welfare and sports services in different areas of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area to better meet the needs and expectations of senior citizens.  The project is run by 3UAS (Metropolia, Laurea and Haaga-Helia).

Digitalization affects the senior population as well. It is important that services take into account the needs and wants of elderly people as users as well. With this partner, the students will get an opportunity to develop the usability of the Helsinki Service Map user interface.

“We expect to have a draft of the Service map UI with better usability and visually improved design for senior users. The proposals will be taken into account this year when an update of Service map is run. Better usability is essential in finding the sport and wellbeing activities – so important after this long period of staying indoors” the Seniors in Shape team says.

Would you like to improve your skills in UI and usability and make an impact on the Service Map of our capital? Join Seniors in Shape in DWS2021!

Hivpoint, The Finnish HIV Foundation

Hivpoint is joining this year’s Digital Wellbeing Sprint! They wanted to try new ways of approaching challenges and the Digital Wellbeing Sprint felt like a good way to do that.

Their focus is not only on people living with HIV but also their families and loved ones, as well as any other people that are concerned or have questions about HIV. Hivpoint raises awareness about prevention of HIV infection, provides testing services, as well as counselling and other support services related to HIV and sexual health.

Students will be offered the opportunity to work with an interesting challenge that can have a great impact on peoples’ lives. Would you like to be part of a project that helps people take care of their sexual health? Join Hivpoint at Digital Wellbeing Sprint 2021!
