About the stream

Y is a conference where you learn to make better products and services — for people and for the planet.


Y is a two day long conference, usually held at Youngstorget in the middle of Oslo, but this year we're going digital. We’ll cover topics within customer experience, design, innovation, and technology. 

Why do we design stuff that just doesn't work? Why do we think that just because something is digital it's better for our planet? Truth is; we make a lot of bad services and our digital waste is having a negative impact on the environment. Y will give you the tools and a nudge in the right direction.

Our goal is to gather everyone involved in making products and services that want to take better care of their users and last, but not least: our planet. Together we’ll solve problems and shape a future that puts the planet- and people-friendly at the top of our business goals.


We welcome you to rewatch the day 2 of the conferance again. Day 1 will be up and running as soon as possible. 


Last year we put up a tent for more than 700 people at Youngstorget, Oslo's main public square. This year, due to Covid-19, we are going digital and making a hybrid conference with elements of TV and event production and it is 100% live on the streaming platform Vier.live



There will be both international and Norwegian speakers at our conference. All international talks will be marked with EN. Se full program at y-oslo.com
