People are escaping from contemplation — Leena, 62
korja.us is a new service that helps citizens to report about problems in their area. Problems can be physical / social / environmental, you name it. Reported problems can be tagged on a map with explanations and picture. korja.us is a nice way to bring up issues and get them a broader audience. This service increases the likelihood that a problem will be recognized and fixed. If you know somewhere is a problem just make a report!
There are many interesting projects aiming at improving life standards and wellbeing of citizens of Helsinki metropolitan area. Since we are all working for common good we decided to share some of those initiatives here.

Whose* Issues is a participatory project led by young designers from Aalto University. The students from Creative Sustainability programme want to give a voice to the citizens of Helsinki.
We believe in an open city. Citizens are co-designers and planners of their neighborhoods. We want to do our bit in making Helsinki more sensitive and open by creating a new channel for citizen-led design activism.
You are the best expert on your own life. You know what works for you and where there are challenges. We know how to find solutions to problems. Invite us to discover issues in your life and we will make your voice heard!
