The Next 30 Years of Transformation – Mapping the ‘Next Steps’: An Inclusive Community Discussion

Architect, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

An ‘open space’ program, with the opportunity for all HFSE attendees to openly, freely, and candidly contribute their views about the agenda for the next 30 years, we will actively welcome all input and views; facilitate the expression of creative contributions; value all that is contributed; and provide a structure and prioritization for the realization of ‘Next Steps’. In this program, the new future vision will emerge and become clarified – through discussion, argument, debate, chaos, and confusion. If you have ever wanted to put your own ‘two cents’ into designing our collective healthcare design future, this is the program to attend.

This program is the sixth part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.


1. Learn how to cultivate a more Generative Space to create ‘a place to flourish’®
2. Discover how to discover how to know ‘what we don’t know we don’t know’
3. Understand why future organizations will have ‘heart centers’, rather than ‘headquarters
4. Hear why it is crucial that we value – and listen to, to fully understand – all voices
