Pre-conference workshop

Sustainable City – A Hundred Years from Now

What is a city and how do we live a hundred years from now?
The buildings and infrastructure we build stays with us for decades, even hundreds of years – are we able to imagine the cultures and citizens who will inhabit those environments? Are we equipped to design for them?

How did it evolve? What kinds of citizens will inhabit it? What kinds of new cultures and behaviors has it fostered? What will be the relationship between humans, animals, plants and the built environment?

The workshop intends to inspire, and provide tools, for long-term creative thinking – allowing us to imagine futures we want, and don´t want. With a selection of Futures Studies and Design methods, the workshop aims to provide the participants an introduction to some from the wide range of tools, to create and build better futures.
