Futur.e.s labs


At Futur.e.s, we’ve always known that the future can only be built if we do it all together, with you. The partners of the festival carry subjects that deal with issues many other actors in our society are faced with, such as institutions, communities, associations, individuals.

Since 2016, Futur.e.s has been orchestrating, with the expertise of Codesignit!, the commitment of those publics, in order to built together our future, through subjects that concern all of us.

Once again this year, innovators from all backgrounds will have the opportunity to think together and suggest solutions so that the digital can truly help our daily lives, our work, our health, our relationships: therefore why not participate?


In a « design fiction » format, 30 participants will anticipate the future in 2068, by putting themselves in the shoes of different personas, 50 years from now, and the digital solutions to the issues that come up.  Equipments and teams will be available to come up with the best ideas and make prototypes out of them.

If imagination turns vivid thanks to a futuristic horizon, it’s all about drawing concrete actions from this creativeness, in order to get ready as of now to build the future in which we want to live.

Thanks to its unique, playful and effective methodology, labs by Codesign-it! are the perfect occasion to gain an insight into co-creation methods, and to prove yourself you can quickly develop relevant propositions to different issues. Labs are also a great opportunity to go straight into testing your ideas on thousands of beta testers, to be accompanied by the best designers, and to develop your network during an intensely creative day at the heart of the festival!
