Bold ways to invent the future

You voted for this

When it comes to climate change, companies need bold ideas that truly stand out among a sea of noise.

We need new products, services, and campaigns that are provocative as well as effective in tackling our climate crisis.

Join The Determined for a fun interactive virtual workshop. Attendees will be exposed to a bold creative process called Thinking Wrong. It encourages people to generate ideas that go beyond typical, normal, boring status-quo boundaries. We’ll spend our time uncovering fresh approaches and wild ideas for taking Climate Action.

Takeaways:
+ Meet like-minded people interested in innovating around bold climate action
+ Share what you’re working on and get feedback from attendees
+ Adopt a fresh new perspective to catalyze new ideas
+ Walk away with fun prompts for Thinking Wrong and unlocking more creativity towards solving challenges in your work

Since 2018, we’ve been running guided networking events meant to get people talking, coming up with cool ideas, and getting motivated to take on our climate crisis. During the event, we introduce Think Wrong prompts, part of our creative process, to spark ideas and conversations. These prompts are something they can walk away with, to help them get unstuck and come up with cool ideas in their everyday lives.

These events are great at breaking the ice among conference attendees, unlocking connections throughout the rest of the conference.

Thinking Wrong helps with:
+ Coming up with fresh approaches to challenges
+ Breaking through roadblocks
+ Uncovering new ideas to explore
+ Using randomness to drive innovation

This event is great for:
+ Business professionals looking for new ways to innovate
+ Funders looking for their next investment
+ Entrepreneurs launching new businesses
+ Researchers diving deep into their work
+ Creative folks interested in seeing how their talents can help move ideas forward

Format:
+ Introduction to Thinking Wrong
+ The Challenge and Think Wrong prompt will be given
+ Breakout rooms form with 2–3 people
+ Groups will work on challenge while going through the Think Wrong process
+ Working off of a template, groups will generate a presentable idea to share at the end of the event
