Johannes Nuutinen

Director, Demos Helsinki

Johannes Nuutinen is a social scientist working towards a sustainable and fair societal transformation at Demos Helsinki – a leading independent think tank focused on societal transformations.

He is a global expert on institutional transformation, and on how to use experimentation as a tool for social change.
”I think the most challenging part of transformation is building bridges between radical thoughts and incremental change. The role of experimentation is valuable exactly here: creating tangible and credible actions that lead towards a broad transformation. This is especially true now, that our ways of working and interacting are on the brink of fundamental change.”
Mr. Nuutinen has advised global corporations and governments on issues related to long-term strategy, experimentation, and societal leadership for over a decade. He has published extensively on topics such as the future of mobility, future of work and the role of corporations within social change.
