.process Festival .process is a series of events that focus on the patterns of emerging innovation: It’s a space to share and spark new ideas on how to create concepts and prototypes for an interconnected world, on how to foster the processes and environments that bring about products that actually serve us as human beings – and it’s a public forum to discuss what we as designers, engineers, and citizens can do to make them more likely to evolve in our cities and companies. dotprocess.org

Futures of Europe In the early 21st century, European societies and the idea of Europe as such are besieged by multitudes of challenges from within and without, not least of which is the rise of populism and gloomy narratives across the continent. With this project we set out to try and counter the over-simplified “Not this!” put forward by said movements and encourage the inhabitants of Europe to think – and dream – about the city, country and Europe of the future they want to live in. In doing so, we aimed to change their perception of both the present and the future into a more positive, desirable one. We conducted two Citizen Futures Days in Cologne and Copenhagen in which we prototyped an idea of a human-centric approach to encourage participants to think positively about the future.
