Join us for this free online talk and learn more about how we use futures design to work strategically with our imagination in our missions.

We’ve recently contributed to Sigge Winther Nielsen’s new book Vilde problemer (Wicked Problems, ed.), and at this talk, you can hear more about the case and approach from our chapter.

We use futures and scenario design when we work with wicked problems – and in our missions to design a future where young people thrive and designing an irresistible circular society.

Alternative images of the future can help us shine a different light on the challenges we’re already seeing, on our blind spots, and on possible pathways for moving towards something better.

Who should join

Innovators, policymakers, change agents, and designers.

Who you’ll meet

Oskar and Sara will use our design resource Vorby as a hands-on example of co-creating a tool using futures design. A range of relevant actors within the children and youth sector can use Vorby to work towards the mission of designing a future with a thriving youth.
