d.confestival -- design thinking safari

16 September 2017, WeQ Space, Allianz Forum Berlin


Hasso-Plattner-Institut stands for the famous design thinking method that results in surprising solutions for economic and technical problems. What happens if you combine innovative methods with civic involvement? "A Soul for Europe" and "Cities for Europe" consider civic engagement as a core factor for social innovation, urban development and European integration. On the basis of their work and within the d.confestival 2017, Andreas Bock and Brigitte Russ-Scherer – key players from these initiatives – will demonstrate strategies and methods to turn citizens and cities from mere spectators into active influencers of the European project. In addition, Anett Szabó will introduce participants to the “Berlin Forum”, a concept to open a strategic debate between the Berlin public and policy-makers.
