About this event

**Welcome to the 10th episode of Season 11 of Productized Podcast. In season, we are talking about the future of our cities. What if cities cared more about their digital products and services and treated their citizens like customers they want to retain? If the mayor would be the equivalent of the CEO, who would take the role of an eventual Chief Product Officer? More importantly, what transformations and improvements could this bring about for lives as citizens as a whole? This is the podcast where innovators, geeks, creators, and entrepreneurs, come to discuss impactful ideas.**

In this episode, André talks to Milla Ovaska (FL). Milla is the Head of International Affairs at the city of Espoo in Finland. She is an international relations specialist and intercultural communication enthusiast interested in expanding networks and bringing Espoo to the world and the world to Espoo. Currently, her goal is to make Espoo the best destination and home for international talent.

Topics we will cover:

* Engaging youth in decision making for a better future;

* Cooperation of governments and youth;

* What are the best practices in this project that other cities could implement?
