What if we didn’t have borders? What if we lost our Arabic skills? What if…? Together with designers from Palmwood and Design Gov, participants explored “What if…? questions, speculating on future-oriented scenarios and provocations.

This event was hosted by members of Design Gov as well as designers from Palmwood. The session started with an introduction to Design Gov, a government initiative embedding human-centered design and creative problem-solving mindsets and skillsets into the UAE government. Next, participants engaged in an interactive multi-player game around “What if…? questions - speculating about our futures and how we might all design it together.
