What kind of future would you like to live in?

On Saturday, 24 June, 2017, from 13:00–17:30, our project Futures of Europe will hold its second workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The workshop will take place at

Litteraturhuset ved Vandkunsten
Nybrogade 28
1203 København

With negative headlines about our present dominating the news, FutureLab Europe members Louise Abildgaard, Simon Höher and Moritz Borchardt encourage their fellow citizens to look beyond the immediate horizon and picture a positive future of Copenhagen and the European environment it is embedded in.

Veit Vogel, a futurist and co-animator, will use forecasting and Design Thinking methodology to guide participants in producing concrete visions for the future. Following the three steps Ideation, Exploration and Prototyping, participants will design newspaper-headlines for the year 2047.

To spark their imagination, participants will discuss the following questions:

  • Which future do we actually want to live in?
  • What do we want for our family, friends, city and Europe in the future?
  • What do we dream about when we think about the day after tomorrow?

The workshop in Copenhagen is the second of two workshops that Futures of Europe is organising. This Danish edition was preceded by a workshop in Cologne, Germany on 22 April 2017.

Graphic support for this project is kindly provided by florida creative lab.
