The Future Makers Workshop, is a co-creation workshop where participants will look at the changing strategic landscape and gain insight into futures literacy methods. The workshop will be facilitated by senior experts from Demos Helsinki, a global think tank working on the transformation of post-industrial societies. Their approach to futures is centered on exploring different possible scenarios together, and helping organizations define their role and responsibility in the changing environment. Hence the Future Makers mindset: without foresight, it is not possible to be an active agent for change. In the workshop, participants will conduct a horizon scanning exercise and create a vision of a desirable future.
