FUTURE SELF


Event Details

This event finished on 27 October 2022


My Future Self is one of the core pillars of the Future Design discipline and the first in a series of two workshops. The objective of this 90 minutes seminar is to establish a practical foundation for identifying and creating a durable and flexible future-oriented identity.
 
Identity research has been growing in practice and has rapidly turned into an essential aspect of determining driving forces for one’s beliefs; however, it has been weaponised to market products and political manipulation. Identity is becoming more of a salient discussion topic, beyond the scope of race, ethnicity and sexuality, as avatars bring further consideration and restraints in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.
 
The seminar includes a presentation of critical developments in identity research, focusing on its core elements: belief and memory of the future.
 
Format: 30 minutes presentation by the tutor; 20 minutes Q&A 30 minutes break out rooms; 10 minutes plenary conclusions
 
Key takeaways:
 
– Develop a long-term perspective on your life
 
– Explore potential futures through different scenarios
 
– Explore different approaches to identity: biological, data (behavioural) etc
 
– Develop a vision, strategies and action plans for the coming years.
