Better worlds are possible, if we wish them.
Building Better Worlds: a futuring & speculative design workshop
The Building Better Worlds workshop will teach designers to break past the horizons of current practice. By exploring the potential consequences of innovation, and creating design fictions that provoke reactions about future technologies, we’ll learn how to help our organisations to respond quickly to the challenges and opportunities ahead. In turn, designers will learn not just how to design the artefacts of the future but also how to help design that future itself.
Building Better Worlds: keynote talk
Drawing on the fields of speculative design, foresight, and futurism, the session will examine how to mobilise for change, how to bring ethics into the heart of practice, and to make technology more responsible, more just, and more democratic. Better worlds are possible, if we wish them.
