The day our canteen serves yellow lunch, is a sure sign that Easter is coming closer. So today we work as hard as ants to make deadlines before we close the office and escape into Easter moods and activities. We wish you all a happy and well deserved time off, and greet you back on Tuesday April 22.
The art of untangling knots
We are now in the process of recruiting participants for our Trippel initiative, a collaboration between SDG and GreenNudge. The ambition is to untangle the major societal knots of our time, this time focused on reducing food waste. In order to succeed, non-competing actors representing the whole value chain will come together, in a co-creation process facilitated by SDG. This is a challenge we are really looking forward to take on - stay tuned for news as we untangle.
Timeout for techies
Our creative technologist Bjørn Gunnar is currently in Belgrade to take in this year's Resonate Festival. Based on the photos he sent us, he seems to enjoy teaming up with fellow designers and electronic geeks to share and learn. Here's a view from above.
