SUSLA Finland is an online community for all Finnish SUSLA users and everyone interested in lowering their carbon and material footprints. The group will get active on September 2nd, 2020, with a Race for The Future theme month – an event organised as part of Designs for a Cooler Planet exhibition in Aalto University.

D-mat will also share information on SUSLA, its different functions, and how it was created, while participants are invited to share their own experiences and tips on shifting to new, sustainable lifestyles.

SUSLA is yet a novel web application, and it will be developed and improved in many ways already during this autumn. At the end of the theme month, participants can reply to a questionnaire, which aims at gathering your experiences of using SUSLA. Additionally, 10-20 participants have an opportunity to join an interview conducted by a researcher from ORSI research project. The purpose of this interview study is to producescientific knowledge about the design and impacts of carbon footprint calculators. Invitation to the interview will be shared in the SUSLA Finland group.

In addition to the theme month, D-mat will continue collaborating with Finnish municipalities and arrange accelerators for their citizens. Follow the latest news from D-mat’s social media and website!
