Sylvain Cottong who is a futurist, economist, consultant, coach, facilitator, researcher, and speaker, will explain what Futures Literacy is and show us how it can interact with Design Thinking. Our guest speaker will facilitate a Mini Futures Literacy Lab on the question “What is the future of <to be announced in session>?” He will then provide a brief summary of the Futures Literacy theory and tell us why it is considered a key skill, as stated by UNESCO, for managing complexity and for the future of leadership & innovation at all levels.
So much of our daily interaction is powered by non-verbal communication however this is more complex in the virtual COVID world. Together with the WWJ community, inspired by examples from the online non-verbal toolkit, we will start creating a non-verbal dictionary for online design thinking sessions.
The way we collaborate while working is what forms the culture of organisations – whether we aim for that or not. In this session, we will look at how organisations are evolving; and at how the practice of design or innovation in the organisation plays a role in that change. Importantly, it is not just the outputs of such innovation or design projects which drives change, but the very existence of this kind of work – and the way it happens – that shapes cultures and is shaped by them. What kind of cultures do design and innovation activity help shape, and what kind of cultures let our work flourish? And how do our facilitation, collaboration and leadership choices contribute?
In this session we will draw on activities of applied improvisation to not only discuss, but explore and experience different cultural pressures
