How might we shape possible future livelihoods in the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution?
Livelihoods are under threat globally for millions of people due to factors spanning globalization, climate change, marine pollution, automation, and more. To thrive in this uncertain future, humans and their livelihoods will need to be adaptable to changing dynamics while maintaining a sense of agency and purpose. However, designing for people in this future isn't enough, we need to design with them. In this class we will explore the case study of “future possible fisheries livelihoods” and take a participatory design approach by designing together with fishers and fisheries workers.
This class will accept 16 graduate, undergraduate students, fellows, post-docs and community members. Apply by Friday, March 8th at 11:59pm.
