Winning hearts and minds: Participatory futures and behaviour change

To hit our climate goals we need to change behaviours, bring people together and avoid polarisation. As the world struggles with growing complexity and uncertainty, this panel gathers artists and the latest research from the field of collective intelligence to explore how we can engage people to imagine — and create — more sustainable and inclusive futures. They’ll discuss methods and ideas that can bring communities and the wider public together to build collective visions for a better world. We’ll also hear about the big data x art helping us visualise climate change, explore new worlds through games where people collaborate with AI and learn about AI agents that help to avoid disaster in group decisions about collective risk scenarios — like environmental crises.
