Designing From Emerging Futures

24. JULY 2020
9:30 am - 13:00 pm

"Future Design" is the globally unique and radical approach that critically and visionarily reflects our current knowledge and our current ideas of desirable futures in order to bring exciting possibilities into imaginability and visibility. “Future Design” does not only aim at identifying, understanding and creatively engaging with threats and possibilities of new technologies and trends, but concurrently supports the design of better and more desirable futures.

Whilst having international orientation, our festival does not only create a network composed of science, technology and art, but also concerns itself with current economic, societal and environmental problems. Our goal is to find solutions, research propositions and alliances to confront the tasks of tomorrow. This approach allows us to create a festival that is characterised by a cooperative and participative collaboration which embodies present trends and sciences regarding digitalisation whilst analysing as well as displaying “desirable improbabilities” of near futures.

Our visitors can expect a diverse speaker-portfolio, which promotes critical thinking and encourages to actively shape our future together.
