Designing Futures
 
Presented by Stuart Candy
 
This webinar shows what designers should know about working with futures and why.
All design helps to shape the future, but few designers are equipped to deal with the full implications of that fact. What is foresight and what is it for? In what ways do design and foresight impact one another? And how can designers use experiential futures to deepen their practice and its impact?
