This is your invite to try the 'Impact Futures' game! This session will be facilitated by Stephanie Pride.
What is IMPACT
IMPACT is a foresight game designed to help people think critically about the future. Players take on distinct characters, each with their own ‘Job from the Future’ and a unique set of preferred conditions. Each player, or player team tries to create a world where their future job is secure.
Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to think about responding to futures already in train
Anyone who wants to think about shaping what the future might be
Anyone interested in the intersection of technology and society
Anyone who likes board games
Where did it come from?
IMPACT was developed via Kickstarter by Idea Couture, a global strategic innovation and experience design firm in collaboration with Policy Horizons Canada’s Emerging Technologies Metascan. StratEDGY Strategic Foresight backed the Kickstarter and received two copies of the board game which we’re keen for people to play.
What else do I need to know about this session?
Stephanie says “Co-learning is the main idea behind offering this session. It gives you a chance to try out futures gaming and make connections back to your own endeavours. It gives me a chance to explore the ways in which this game adds value to other futures thinking approaches. I’d love any feedback you have at the end of the session.”
Bring your curiosity and willingness to give something a go. We'll bring the snacks!
