Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

How long does it take to build utopia? Together as a group, we will find out. In this workshop, we will try to build a simulated utopia that all participants are happy with. We will introduce concepts in systems thinking, computer simulations, and participatory design. Participants will learn how to represent real world interconnections and dynamics with numbers and algorithms. Design the world, and see how it evolves according to the group’s decisions. This simulation of consensus and community building requires no prior coding experience.
