For the 4th year in a row, I've had the pleasure to attended and facilitate workshops at a Better World by Design
. Joined again by Ben Gaydos
and Matt White
along with Julia Yezbick
and Kawandeep Virdee
, we put together two workshops that introduced Future's model in accelerating positive change called Future Blitz. These workshops are an intensive challenge-specific, place-based experience meant to conceive the inconceivable and rapidly generate and prototype ideas to bring to life. Participants are exposed to techniques for breaking out of their comfort zone and embrace randomness, chance, and wrong answers to come up with unexpected ideas.
