Session Description

This will be an interactive, learning-by-doing session to get familiar with the concept of Futures Literacy, to experience the method of a Futures Literacy Laboratory (FLL) and to explore the openness of futures together on the topic “The Futures of Work in 2031”. The Lab is open to a maximum of 30 participants who have not been in an FLL before. All participants are requested to stay for the full duration. The two facilitators will take participants through all four FLL-phases: Reveal anticipatory assumptions about the futures of work, reframe with an alternative future, rethink the topic by asking new questions in the present, and next steps. Participants can explore the potential of this collective intelligence knowledge creation process and uses in their own contexts.
