What happens after you register? We will follow up by inviting you to regular community calls for building the event and making sure you are the first to learn about the resources and opportunities that others are creating all over Europe on these topics!
The current deadline is a soft one, and if you can submit some idea in progress in the next days or week that is totally fine, just register as soon as possible
Tickets can only be bought through participation:
I would propose here that everyone contributing can also or is even encouraged to invite/bring people they know would be interested in the events. What do you guys think?

Location: Stockholm, “House Blivande”
A Speculative design workshop building upon the Edgeryders speculative design Brief “Welcome to Retirement”. This would be a whole day workshop including a kickoff talk, creative prototyping and speculative design project presentations following the established model of the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design.
Recruit 1 expert on retirement planning for a talk.
Send invitations to groups of students, creatives/unsecured employes and retired citizens.
Programm will include:
1 talk on retirement planning/possibilities/challenges
1 introduction presentation in the methods of speculative design and rapid prototyping
1 inspiration presentation for the speculative brief of DIY retirement solutions
Material for quick prototyping
Material for proper documentation and presentation
1-2 Speculative design experts helping with conceptual ideation, prototyping and documentation If possible would be great if retirement expert could stay for counselling
Participants will be teamed up in Generational mixed groups with retired members and the retailers of the future working together.
This workshop would provide the young participants both with valuable information for planning their retirement as well as learning about the methods of speculative design and rapid prototyping. It would also encourage intergenerational dialogue and understanding between the retired and young participants and foster the development of new and unconventional ideas through the freedom of the speculative approach.
The nature of the prototyping focus will also lead to outcomes that we can present and share easily.
What do you guys think? Might there maybe be some budget for material and the expert I would like to invite? (travel costs)
Maybe we could add another topical motivation like: the best outcome will be presented to lawmakers in the field?
And does anyone already know an expert in retirement planning in Stockholm or where I could contact one? (otherwise, I will reach out to Arbetförmedlingen and the economics department of the local Universities)
@erik_lonroth, great! I am in Stockholm and happy to help. House Blivande in Frihamnen would be a good option for a location :)! We could meet up there next week or so if you want to talk things through
We have figured out the over all budget (12 000 EUR + 2500 EUR for travel) and now we have to plan and see how to distribute it and what we need to do to help each other realise the workshops, hackathons and talks.
At this point do we need some more information from your side:
At the very least we need to know:
Names of main organisers
Title of the event
Short description (1-3 sentences)
How long is the event
How many people?
Where is the event?
What else do you need?
You can quickly answer that in this sheet as soon as possible (this week!):
HOWEVER, IT WOULD BE EVEN BETTER IF YOU FILL OUT THIS MORE DETAILED FORM: (Deadline 20th of September!)
We developed this one specifically for the festival, taking into account the questions and needs that came up during the previous calls and discussions.
We need this to be filled out by everyone contributing an event by the 20th of September!
It is also a great help to develop your proposal post and/or prepare for the community call on the 17th of September 18:00 Brussels time:
During that call everyone who wants will be given up to 5 minutes to present their idea and get feedback and support from others. This is a great opportunity to develop your idea further before the initial proposal deadline on the 20th. After that date we will start to distribute budget and helpers, and the sooner you are in this process, the better!
Looking forward to your answers and to see you in the call!
