How do we look into the future to try and understand the potential threats and opportunities ahead? How can we use design as a vehicle to understand the myriad social, cultural, economic, environmental, and political conditions that could play out in the next decade? Futures Thinking is an emerging practice that utilizes strategies from Strategic Foresight, Speculative Design and Design Thinking to craft rich visions of the future so that we can have an informed discussion about what’s ahead. We do this by prototyping the future today and then developing strategies to create the future or avert from the future we don't want. In this talk and workshop Phil Balagtas, a futurist, designer and strategist, will walk through examples from academia and corporations for how to think about and easily graph scenarios of the future. @The Club
