Planning ahead in uncertain times: Scenario design for bureaucrats

Empathy for the future – embracing uncertainty with scenario design

To make good things happen, you first need to imagine the future you want. In this experiential session we’re exploring how elements of storytelling, design, and foresight can merge into immersive scenarios, and how speculative narratives from the future can unlock new perspectives on not only what is to come — but also the here and now.

Danish Design Centre is currently finalizing the first release of their scenario kit “Living Futures”; a practical toolset built around four radically different renditions of 2050 told through audio stories from future citizens. During the session we’ll get a sneak peak and listen to a handful of stories from the kit that will be made publicly available later this year.
