About this Event

"Our Futures" is an open-source board game designed by innovation foundation Nesta, designed to unlock our imagination about the future. It aims to harness collective creative processes to solve problems that we don't yet know exist and make the process of shaping the future publicly accessible. The game was developed off the back of Nesta’s report, Our Futures: By the people, for the people, that advocates for mass public involvement in shaping our collective futures.

This free workshop is a hands-on opportunity to participate in a game of “Our Futures” with your colleagues from across the APS. You will work through emerging problems using futures techniques. You will share your knowledge and experiences, and learn from others, as you navigate the provocative scenarios that you're presented with. Prepare to have your assumptions tested, and to walk away with a fresh perspective on how to work with others to build better futures.

Simply register and we'll send you the online link the day prior to the event.

This event is part of the Innovation Month 2020 online program and is hosted by the Better Policy and Futures Team at the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, in partnership with the Public Sector Innovation Network.

Don’t forget to check out the main session, where we will be exploring Nesta’s report on participatory futures and what it means for Australia.
