Designing Desirable Futures

An Intro to Futures Thinking

About this Workshop

When organisations use design thinking as an approach to innovation, how far ahead are they really looking? Are there larger opportunities and longer-term risks that might be overlooked?

In this 2-day in-person hands-on workshop, Studio Dojo will introduce how the field of futures thinking could enable individuals and organisations to thrive in an increasingly complex world.

Embark on a guided journey to explore your own perceptions of the future, expand your possibilities, and learn how such reflections could be useful alongside design processes.

What You’ll Learn

  1. Fundamentals of Futures Thinking
    Learn the philosophy, mindsets & processes to help you think of, anticipate and create futures
  2. Imagine & Prototype Future Scenarios
    Expand your possible futures, broaden your choices, inform your future actions
  3. Interaction of Futures Thinking & Design Thinking
    Learn how the two disciplines complement each other

This is for you if you are…

  • A designer and changemaker wanting to have more tools for change under your belt.
  • Curious about the increasingly popular field of Futures Thinking and Strategic Foresight.
  • Looking for a quick taster experience before diving deeper.
  • Working within a larger ecosystem to bring about better outcomes.
  • Supporting strategic visioning of products, services, teams or organisations.
