Future Lab 2017: Urban Mobility

November 20th and 21st

 
The Future Lab 2017 is powered by WEDaVinci - Truly Collaborative Ideation.

 

Be part of an exciting team of corporate professionals, digital natives, and start-up entrepreneurs!

 

 

WHY
The issue: Every working day, urbanization is forcing billions of people to waste a significant percentage of their time and energy commuting and/or stuck in traffic jams.

WHAT
The Future Lab is a Design-Thinking-Lab, part of this year’s Future of Leadership Initiative (FLI) journey on Innovation and agility. Corporate thought leaders together with digital natives, executives in the field of innovation and delegates from start-ups in the area of mobility will come together to ideate innovative solutions to enhance the quality of life in urban areas.

Results and insights from the Future Lab will be presented to global thought leaders and senior executives during the next Future of Leadership Conference on February 28 and March 1, 2018.

HOW
In Berlin and Düsseldorf on November 20-21, 2017 mixed teams will apply design thinking methods and innovative digital tools to create real user story. With the inputs from our Thought Leaders interviews and a direct observation experience, the participants will bring innovation and agile theory into practice.
