FUTURES LITERACY

Futures literacy is a competence that offers insights into both the reasons why we use the futures and the methods of how humans deploy the futures when they anticipate. Being futures literate enables people to embrace complexity as a gift and to use the future to innovate the present.

ANTICIPATORY THINKING

Anticipatory thinking is a complex cognitive process for assessing and managing risks in transcontextuality. It is a process of questioning previously unquestioned assumptions and to easily shift back and forth from criticality to visioning, to transformational thinking.

QUANTUM SOCIALIZATION

Quantum Socialization aims at providing the learning experience in order to begin to embrace complexity, discontinuity, entanglement, the superposition of multiple, parallel future timelines, as well as intimate social circles within a few-to-few fractal network as an emergent sociological force.

LUCID DREAMING

Lucid Dreaming means ‘dreaming up’ new technologies and new technological applications to bring them into being. Every future technology will seem to be like magic from our present perspective. Lucid Dreamwork accompanies prototyping futures.

GLOBAL RESILIENCE

When faced with existential risks, global crises, tragedy, environmental collapse, and health issues, resilience is how well a system, a society, or an individual can adapt and bounce back. In some cases, resilience can imply going above and beyond the previous baseline.

POSTNORMAL TIMES

Postnormal times represent an era in which old orthodoxies are dying, new meanings are emerging, and very few things seem to make sense. The result is a product of the forces shaping our globalized world: accelerating change, uncertainty, and ignorance.

WORLDBUILDING CAPACITIES

Worldbuilding capacities is the process of actually constructing new realities based on a translation of the principles with which science-fiction and fantasy writers create their imaginary universes.

EVOLUTIONARY COOPERATION

Evolutionary cooperation is an understanding of the design, implementation, and initiation of new organizational models that foster and facilitate the evolution of trans-contextual, trans-paradigmatic, and trans-perspective cooperation.

SCENARIO PLANNING

Scenario planning is a method to help to form an idea of possible futures. The scenario work helps to illustrate the plurality in futures. Various methods in scenario planning can be utilized to help to delineate possible images of the future.

STRATEGIC FORESIGHT

Strategic foresight is a structured and systemic approach that is embedded in organizational anticipation of the futures for strategic reasons. It is about pluralistic futures that imply threats but also opportunities to broaden a sense for decision-making capacities.

BECOME A PART OF THE IMMERSIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES IN TIMES OF PERMANENT REVOLUTIONS (VIDEO FROM 2018)

Keynote Speaker

As a Systems Ecologist I see my role explicitly as a communicator. Keynote presentations are an essential part of my work, where I can articulate thoughts and ideas, which may or may not resonate with an audience. In my presentation style I often utilize the richness of our technocultural media world to illustrate my points in a more entertaining format. However, surprise and discomfort can be as important as inspiration and sincerity.

Consultancy

Consultancy allows me to speak directly and personally to a client in form of a dialogue. It is a reciprocal arrangement of mutual learning. The interactions and interpersonal relationships help to exchange ideas and to have iterative, almost immediate feedback. The goal is to develop flexible strategies, to depict a broad scale of possible images of the futures, and to design customized tools and methods accordingly.

Gamified Workshop Design

Immersive and ubiquitous play provides a preparation for future possibilities on an entirely different level of engagement. Learning through play is really easy and effective. It combines the best out of both worlds, entertainment and education. In consideration of our challenges ahead, it especially enables an understanding of hyper-complexity, inter-connectivity, disruptions as well as the radical dynamics of changing change.
