80 % of people don’t know their passion” - Stanford University

70 % of people believe that changing just one small thing would make an improvement to their happiness level” - The Telegraph

We at Oulu Entrepreneurship Society and Creativity Squads decided to support you with planning your life journeys by organizing Self-Hack for the first time in Oulu.


Only 20% of us can define what their real passion is and truly follow it. Are you in this "other" 80%?

That's fine - we are too! We won't promise you to find one (if you haven’t done it so far), but we want to help you to create and realize the next exacting story of your life!


For all curious individuals, who want to learn about and develop themselves. Age, profession, experience level doesn’t matter. Anytime is good to create and design for the future!


1,5 half day event powered by individual work, discussions, presentations and workshops. Over 12 hours just for you - to think, analyze and plan for future!

During Self-Hack you will:

  • Explore your thoughts, strengths, weaknesses, fears, wishes and desires, learn how to listen to yourself

  • Discover areas that you want to change or improve and learn how to boost your creativity and motivation, manage stress and take control over obstacles

  • Design your next steps, create a personal roadmap and receive feedback

We will follow the famous Design Thinking & Stanford's Life Design approaches.
