MISSION

UNDERSTANDING IS MORE THAN JUST KNOWING. IT IS MORE THAN ADAPTING COLD FACTS AS IT CARRIES VALUES WITH IT.​

By Glasshouse Helsinki

When viewing the world around us, listening the turmoil thoughts of the people, it is obvious, that we are in crossroads of our future. Climate change is reality, pandemic showed, how vulnerable the whole system is.

After decades of unsustainable expansion, there is an urge for course of correction. On macro level – the political, economic, social and ethical change needs to happen at the same time.

"Values based on stakeholder strategy includes and covers the whole ecosystem."

Interactions are dynamic sequences for solving the problems we are facing. Encounters are happening. On micro level – individuals, institutions and companies are restructuring their strategies. They are judging the brands, experiences and themselves in a whole new light.

For moving forward, it is crucial to rethink the business strategies on all layers. Rather than optimizing the shareholder value, the focus starts moving towards to strengthening the stakeholder values. Values based on stakeholder strategy includes and covers the whole ecosystem, environment, employees, clients, shareholders, partners, everyone who works for us and with us. All being equally important.

The change is inevitable, needed and big. And we all know, crisis and chaos are opportunities for new thinking and creativity. There is hope!

There is a momentum to connect the dots and build a concept with a holistic view on sustainability. A view, where the creativity and design serve the needs and purpose of sustainability.

Glasshouse Helsinki wants to be the interface and the energy for the change.

    Ismo Hölttö – Goldsmith of Finnish photography exhibition features Hölttö’s celebrated photos from the 1960s. The iconic Helsinki photos together with powerful portraits taken in the Finnish countryside capture the essence of the social transition and evolution of the 1960s. These images embody the spirit of a nation on the threshold of inevitable change that altered the face of many countries throughout the 19th and 20th centuries: post-war melancholia and sorrowful nostalgia at the loss of agrarian lifestyle, tempered with the optimistic hope of a people transitioning to an urban society.
