Future Club: Counter Culture and Generation Y

14th of June 2012 in Brussels

How will Gen Y influence business and workplaces? And how will the counter cultures of the future shape the future’s new markets? These are questions that will be discussed on the Institute's next future club event in Brussels.

We are pleased to offer you a free trial, if you are not already a member of the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies.

Backstage Innovation

Backstage and Roskilde Festival, in cooperation with Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies and Center for Culture and Experience Economy, invite you to the workshop Backstage Innovation

Director of Research at the Institute Carsten Beck will talk about how thinking in alternative future scenarios can break old habits and start you on the path to achieving good, creative and profitable results for your company.

Future non-residential construction

The Institute's Anders Bjerre presents the future of non-residential construction at Euroconstruct, 15th June in London. Other speakers from the Euroconstruct network will present other aspects of future construction.

Euroconstruct is an association of specialised research organisations from 19 countries with expertise in the analysis and forecasting of construction market trends in Europe.

Invitation: Co-Creation Workshop

The Institute and Copenhagen Business School are co-hosting a two-day workshop called Co-Creating Innovation for Sustainable Future Markets, June 18-19

We have room for a few more guests – though only guests that can participate actively in the debate about co-creation. We are not looking for people merely curious about co-creation, but for people that have actively worked with co-creation in theory or practice. In return, we offer free attendance, apart from a small fee to cover lunch and coffee on the too days.

If you are interested, please contact Klaus Æ. Mogensen at klm@cifs.dk.


Free article from SCENARIO 02:2012

PhD in trend research Maria Mackinney-Valentin has dissected  roots; this reviled hair feature known by anyone who colour their hair. Traditionally it has been seen as sloppiness and poor care if the 'roots' – the new hair that isn’t coloured is allowed to grow unbleached. However, there’s now status in looking as if you haven’t bothered. Read about Accidentialism, Trash Flash, Cheapo and other trends today, reflected in a woman’s hair care.

As an appetiser for some of our presentation subjects we have created new videos on our Youtube channel. Watch Johan Peter Paludan talk about the future of health.
