Speculative Design Workshop

It is the year 2035. Twelve years ago, children's rights were incorporated into the German Basic Law, and companies began to integrate children's rights into their products. New ways of working emerged, and new products and features were developed. This had an impact on online games, on social media platforms and hardware. The everyday behavior, communication, and "education" of children and families has changed.

In the workshop, participants will work with the Designing for Children Design Guide. They become future product developers and observe how their ideas shape society. They create a future story that addresses the changes and challenges they might face, especially in the areas of society, technology, economy, ecology, politics in 2035.

The workshop consists of two parts. In the first part, principles and methods of designing for the future will be addressed and the principles of the Designing for Children Design Guide will be learned and discussed. After a break, participants will develop their own visions of possible futures together and describe them as 'headlines'.
