Digital Sjølråderett - Design for a Nordic digital shift


'Digital Sjølråderett' is a conference that asks what the ‘digital shift’ means in a Nordic setting. We ask what is at stake when global digitalization trends meet the Nordic welfare states? And how can we design for a Nordic digital shift?


The name of the conference, 'Digital sjølråderett', comes from ‘sjølråderett’, the Nordic term for the right to societal self-determination. We ask what kind of challenges and possibilities does the digital shift bring about for societal development, policy, and design? How can the digital shift be used to promote societal values of trust, equity, and collective rights? And is there a Nordic model of digital design in the making that could challenge the hegemony of Silicon Valley?

This conference is hosted by the research network of Digital Urban Living at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, in collaboration with writer and designer Dan Hill, Director of Strategic Design at Vinnova, The Swedish Innovation Agency.

The conference aims at addressing multidisciplinary issues of designing for a Nordic ‘digital shift’ - spanning societal development, design, governance, technology, urbanism and architecture. Across cases and discussions the conference addresses what ‘digital sjølråderett’ could mean in the future? And how this right could be challenged and developed?

‘Digital sjølråderett’ presents a mix of cases and discussions framed by research on design and the digital shift. The conference is chaired by Einar Sneve Martinussen (Chair of Interaction design at AHO) and Dan Hill (Director for Strategic Design at Vinnova).

We will hear from James Bridle (closing keynote), Kai Reaver (AHO), Johan Høgåsen-Hallesby (Urban Sharing), Aleksandra Z. Fischer (AHO), Marius Røstad and Eivind Skogen (Ruter Nye kundetjenester), Brita Bladland Nielsen and Eivind Junker (NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities), Jonny Aspen (AHO), Leo Rygnestad (Områdeløft Grønland og Tøyen / Bydel Gamle Oslo), Joakim Formo (Ericsson Strategic Design) and many more.
