The closing session of the day outlined working toolkits, initiatives and frameworks that encourage collaborative thinking in the design industry. It took stock of the events and discussions over the day, mapping out how ‘futures’ and often abstract concepts can be made real in practice for clients.
Futures Forum highlighted what those in academia, research and practice are working on and what the audience can take away from the day in order to apply new thinking to their own business and projects. How can they be better equipped? The afternoon introduced a new manner of collaborative practice, introducing some pointers for the future and sharing insights on global trends in the built environment and its relationship to wider ethical and economic activity.
