       Short Title:Black Swans
       Long Title:The Black Swans
       Description:The Black Swans project will be implemented as a writing competition in the course of 2012 and it can be availed of also as part of the programme for Helsinki’s year as Design Capital. In futures research, Black Swans refer to rare, improbable, surprising and unanticipated events that have very major effects when they happen. These effects can be either negative or positive. What the Committee is looking for through the writing competition are ideas, views and visions regarding what could be events, actions or matters – positive or negative – that would change everything or at least very much? What would the world and life be like in the future if a Black Swan comes to pass?
