Designing for What If (instead of as is) (Copenhagen)

Date: May 24th
Time: 9.00 - 10.00
Location: 1508, Wilders Plads 13 A, 1403 København K, Denmark

Event organized by 1508.

Design, as a craft, has evolved. It has shifted from focusing solely on shapes and colors to encompassing a mindset and methodology that we can leverage to create anything – from meaningful digital solutions to societal change.

Join 1508 for their Booster as they explore Futures Thinking and its role in design. Learn how this methodology opens doors to understanding tomorrow’s challenges today. Gain insights into how they, as designers, can collaborate and craft forward-looking solutions that address interconnected global issues.

This session isn’t just about theory; it’s about practical tools and a mindset shift. They illustrate these concepts through a real-world case study, showing you how Futures Thinking actively shapes design solutions. Walk away with a clearer understanding of how design can create meaningful impact, beyond the here and now, and how you can be a part of shaping the future.

This event is FREE.
