The future is not a distant place in the unknown, but rather a tangible place in the present, a constant construction of thoughts, ideas, decisions, actions, and images of what is possible tomorrow.
We need a new language and a new approach to address the future that goes beyond the futurists as the magical oracle and uses the future as a hands-on democratic process, a collective creative practice, a new organizational culture, and a critical mindset of inquiry.
In this talk, Nicolas will share how for the past 7 years Bespoke has been helping firms and institutions around the world transform into the next generation of organizations, incorporating Futures Design as a core practice to learn how to use uncertainty as an asset for innovation, creativity and for the development of more sustainable and systemic solutions for tomorrow.
