In society and as individuals we have lost our imaginative skills. We no longer imagine a utopian society, only dystopic social futures. Is there an imagination crisis? If so, why? And how can we overcome it and find new paths to social imagination? How can we quicken social and public imagination in our organisations and in society? And what can we do as individuals and as a collective?

Welcome to the launch of the Forum for Social Innovation Sweden’s new series, Social Innovation Foresight — that combines live events with short keynote videos.

Social Innovation Foresight #1 will take us on a journey into social imagination. Together we will reflect and learn how we can find new paths to social imagination. Sir Geoff Mulgan, Professor of Collective Intelligence, Public Policy and Social Innovation at University College London (UCL), will start with a keynote followed by a talk with Cassie Robinson, Deputy Director of Funding Strategy at The National Lottery Community Fund, and Roope Mokka, Co-founder of Demos Helsinki, a futurist and urbanist with focus on social transformations.

The event is moderated by Johanna Koljonen, a well-known and popular Finnish-Swedish media analyst, author and experience designer with a background in radio and TV.
