The aim of the Speculative Futures events is to showcase the various approaches within Speculative Design and related practices from multiple perspectives and cultural backgrounds. For this edition, we collaborated with our colleagues from the SpeculativeEdu project who will showcase some projects of their community and discuss their approach. SpeculativeEdu, an Erasmus+ project, started in late 2018 with the intention of strengthening Speculative Design education by collecting and exchanging existing knowledge and experience and advancing educational practice in the area of Speculative Design and its self-critical approach. This 90-minute event will present a selection of case studies, putting designers upfront, presenting their futures. The first part will include three projects selected from the SpeculativeEdu landscape and the second part will include three projects from the Global Futures Lab, Mexico City (GFL/MX). The European and North American perspectives will be at the forefront of the event, aiming to introduce participants with an emphasis on the “real world”; that is, responding to the needs of people, society, public policy and the economy. The SpeculativeEdu team will give a short introduction and will moderate Q&A sessions with invited designers.
