This workshop was a hands-on opportunity to participate in the game ‘Our Futures’ - an open-source board game by UK innovation foundation Nesta.

It’s designed to unlock our imagination about our future and to solve problems that we don’t know exist yet. Participants worked through emerging challenges using futures techniques, and shared knowledge and experiences as they navigated provocative scenarios. Nesta developed the game off the back of their report Our Futures: By the people, for the people.

The report (and game) advocates for mass public involvement in shaping our collective futures.
