What if we could use existing resources instead of constructing new buildings? This is the philosophy that led to the creation of the first “School as a Service”, in the city of Espoo in the Helsinki region. By sharing space with Aalto University, this award-winning school solution doesn’t only reduce educational costs, but also offers a new pedagogical approach which allows learning to take place everywhere.
