Do you work with modern leadership, HR, organisational strategy, ESGs, business development or innovation? And do you want to learn how to use the future in your work life? This masterclass will help you create a culture and environment in which you can achieve your aspiration.
As part of our efforts to democratise the future, the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies has designed a targeted masterclass that explores different building blocks for enhanced futures imagination and anticipation. Without futures thinking, we become blind to paths ahead, and our actions today may be clouded by bias, rooted in misguided assumptions, or suffer from poverty of the imagination.
This masterclass provides a crucial set of hands-on tools and frameworks that help you become more futures literate – an essential skill for the 21st century as defined by UNESCO. Through interactive engagement and action learning, combined with a balanced blend of theory, exercises and tangible tools, this masterclass will inspire and enhance your uses of the future.
Futures Literacy is best practiced and learned in relationship with others, and our participants will be upskilled through a collaborative process for understanding and challenging underlying anticipatory assumptions and cognitive biases that can impair decision-making and world views. Our facilitators will bring their knowledge and expertise from working with anticipation as a public good through arts, culture, and education.
This masterclass is designed for practitioners with experience in futures literacy and foresight processes, as well as innovators, strategic planners, business developers and designers alike, who wish to inform their work through more, better, and brighter futures.
In addition, we offer exclusive trainings that enable you to cultivate futures literacy in a particular thematic area within your organisation or community. Please reach to Senior Advisor, Nicklas Larsen to learn more.
At the Institute, we view futures literacy as a public good. This masterclass is aligned with our goal of increasing the quality of that public good as it guides participants towards a theoretical and practical understanding of futures literacy and design principles for better uses of the future.
The masterclass is facilitated live-online in two sessions, with 3.5 hours per live session (including 30-minute break).
The masterclass consists of a mixture of live-online instruction and hands-on online workshop activities facilitated by CIFS advisors/futurists with years of global experience. Throughout, we will contextualise and discuss what we have learned.
