Facilitated discussions between participants and industry experts centered on future trends and innovations within the respective industry or market. Discussion outcomes and ideas are consolidated using various creative methods.
Description: The initial component of the module involves actively facilitated discussions between participants and local leaders (start-ups, innovators, entrepreneurs, businessmen etc.) relative to trends, new technologies and business models, visionary outlooks, or other topics that interconnect business, environment and society.
During the second part of the module, the groups work to transform the results of their discussions into tangible creative outputs (e.g. paintings, 3D printed objects, music etc.)
Participants are required to build upon their ideas, thoughts and knowledge and to adapt quickly to the framework presented by the certified facilitator. The exercise serves to stimulate participants‘ creativity and collaborative skills.
Example: Programme participants along with technology experts and designers from Silicon Valley, spent a day consolidating their visions of how automobiles will change by the year 2050.
