A workshop you can’t miss!
Last year I wrote about an awesome workshop held in Barcelona called If we ruled the World. It was one of the best workshops I have ever had the pleasure to attend since I learnt a lot about analytical and creative thinking, team-working, problem-solving and decision-making. It really exceeded my expectations. It surely had far-reaching significance. It was well worth taking it!
As the course page reads: “If we ruled the World is a strategy workshop in which players rethink global systems using tools from speculative scenario planning. Participants will work in dynamic groups. Throughout the course, participants will learn analytical and creative thinking skills while focusing on speculative design and worldbuilding techniques. We will imagine possible worlds based on the reality we’re living now”.
Now you have the chance to join it online. Needless to say, I strongly recommend it. It starts on September 5, so you’d better get cracking! Here is the link: http://schoolofma.org/if-we-ruled-the-world.html

Over the last decade, scenario methods have become widely used in some European countries in policy-making, so if you are interested in future developments and the way you can have an influence on them or even change them, don’t miss out on this unique and far-reaching learning experience:
