Megatrend Mashup: A Game for Designing + Experiencing Emerging Disruptive Technologies

Powered by GEN New Zealand

Open to everyone. Workshop in game format.

Megatrend Mashup is a collaborative card game that will help you consider emerging, disruptive technologies and apply them to real problems. It was designed by Lee Dowsett and the System Transformation Team at the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs.
In this game, we will form international teams, and then each team will:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Face an issue by drawing a problem card
  • Gain knowledge by drawing 6 cards that outline megatrends
  • Share knowledge with your team about the megatrends you have drawn
  • Make a plan to solve the problem using 2 or 3 of the trends.

 

The session will be highly interactive, fun, challenging and educational.
