Trendspotting and Future Thinking

Entrepreneur or not, it is an advantage to understand where tomorrow is headed and how we can impact the future.

This course seeks to introduce the students to the concept trends, trendspotting and future thinking, building a critical perspective of what we can do “now” to impact “tomorrows”.
You will get methods and tools to work with different types of future scenarios. A "tool box" to understanding trends and their role in society and how best to foresee and work with them in new business creation and development.

When you work with the future, you will find that it is an area you can shape according to your own interests and that it is applicable to different fields, cultural backgrounds and situations. Your input and ideas are extremely valuable to the course and to your classmates, who will most likely come from a different field of study.

The course is given by Konstfack once a year. Teaching language is English.
