Dance, Design, Develop: An Optimistic View on Parallelwelten in Innovation and Society
Optimism is a mental attitude reflecting a belief or hope that the outcome of some specific endeavor, or outcomes in general, will be positive, favorable, and desirable. We believe, optimism is the major human fuel for the change of tomorrow. This holds for everyday work, for innovation as well as for the future of society. But often optimism is stuck in a Parallelwelt within these spheres.
Therefore: within this panel we will discuss the three core contradictions in positivity for change:
I. What’s the optimistic beauty of everyday work compared to just work everyday
II. What’s the optimistic beauty of innovation happening at the edge of reason, compared to following innovation processes without outcome
III. What’s the optimistic beauty for a future-oriented societal perspective within a world of climate change and democracy pressures
