Near Future Design: Territory, Consciousness and performance of the Futures


On October 14th, in occasion of the Data Academy #SCE2015 in Bologna, Italy, Nefula will held a session on Near Future Design, open data and territory design.

The Near Future Design aim is to transform the perception of possibility, in order to foster better understandings of desirable and preferable futures, enabling the foundations of their development.

All of this is valid also for the linked dynamics to territory design. The understanding of relational systems which animate the territory (also online) is essential today in order to create visions, meaning, futures, consciousness. The mapping of these datas is able to create new, hidden, wasted opportunities or to better understand those ones followed until now.
