Our latest article is out: Dynamics of experimental governance – A meta-study of functions and uses of climate governance experiments

Have you thought about the various roles experimentation can have in governance?  We have 🙂 In our latest article, written together with Senja Laakso and Mikko Annala, we suggest that the potential functions and uses of experiments can be fruitfully grouped into four different categories. The essence of experimenting is to 1) test new things. At the same time, experimentation can also be about 2) creating profound influence, about 3) multiplying influence and about 4) promoting systemic change. The article is based on a meta-study of  25 articles of experimental climate governance and it is part of the Journal of Cleaner Production special issue on Experimentation for climate change solutions.

  1. Why is this “experimentation in governance” programme full of people with degrees in business, or humanities, or sustainability, or whatever, but no real designers or architects are included?

    The “experimentation culture” was born and has been developed in professions like industrial designer, architect, graphic designer, user interface designer etc. Even fashion designers know more about experimentation process than some MBA wannabes. Why is there no designers in this programme?

    This is what is wrong with Finland nowadays. People who have skills are not included, but crooks and fakes who are good at talking are let anywhere and anytime, to represent something they know nothing about.

    Best Regards,
    A Designer
