Advent Special: Learning to shape futures

+++ This event is sold out +++

The Open Lab evening "Futures Storytelling" teaches the art of storytelling on the fly. Based on various scenarios and future personas, we slip into the shoes of a person from the future and create a picture of the future from their perspective.

With the method of futures storytelling, we can break down complex content and make innovations tangible. In this way, you can experience possible futures together in a very visual way and discuss them with each other.

Storytelling can be used wherever facts need to be communicated in a comprehensible and emotionally accessible way, be it in strategy development or in discussions at university seminars.

In terms of content, we will deal with the topic of democracy. The idea of democracy is more than 2000 years old. A lot has changed since then. Today, social media and globalisation are changing the way we live together. And in the future? In the workshop, we will explore the question of how positive images of the future can be created beyond clichés and stereotypes. Discover with us how democracy can continue!
