How can we make Vantaa an attractive choice for young people? High-class international tech companies are located in Vantaa, both their Finnish headquarters and also production sites. Together they employ thousands of workers. However, Vantaa is not widely known as a place of world-class high-tech production work. Also, many people see the production work as old-fashioned, boring and not very attractive, although the reality is something different. We want to find ways to make Vantaa high tech production more visible and ensure enough potential young people consider it as a career option.
We are looking for concepts that can be further developed e.g. in a hackathon later. Especially concrete pilot actions are valued, so we can start experimenting quickly. On the other hand, we also expect that the teams will keep in mind the sustainable vision for the year 2030, when city of Vantaa will be carbon neutral. And wild ideas beyond that are more than welcome!
The best ideas get invitation to present the idea and can be developed further in cooperation with the city of Vantaa. There will also be a possibility to connect with the companies in question.
