This video series is about four students trying to solve one major problem in Finnish society: how to get the elderly people to exercise more? The team members, Nicolas, Melina, Han and Hai Anh, won the Social Hackathon in spring 2017 which was powered by OP and Deloitte. The team studies at the Creative Sustainability Master’s Degree Programme in Aalto University.
Now the team is working on the project in order to develop their idea into a pilot with the help and mentoring of OP and Deloitte. The progress of the project will be reported on a weekly vlog at OP’s YouTube channel.
