Institute for the Future - Governance Futures Lab
Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (HST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The Governance Futures Lab is a two day event being sponsored by The Institute for the Future (Palo Alto, CA).
The global event is organized to bring a world-class cohort of critical thinkers together at the IFTF headquarters on April 26th to diagnose our current and future problems in systems of governance. The end product of this work will be the a series of design briefs outlining the problems and parameters for a number of critical issues in government and social policy.
On April 27th, these design briefs will be distributed to teams around the world. Teams of designers, creatives, engineers, architects, political scientists, and futurists will be stationed at global nodes in Singapore, Abu Dhabi, New York, Birmingham, San Francisco, and Honolulu. These design team will spend the greater part of April 27th imagineering and creatively problem solving the contents of these design briefs; presenting models, policies, constitutional preambles, info-graphics, and other "artifacts" of the design process. These artifacts and presentations will be shared collectively with all of the Governance Futures Lab participants and will lay the foundation work for a new wave of rethinking governance for our futures. More information about the project can be found here, and in the enclosed pdf.
