514. FUTURES 1. Collective transitions (Denmark). A talk with Christian Bason

Christian Bason⁠ was the first name that came to our mind, when thinking in design in government, this is why his interview opens this serie. Christian is the co-founder of Transition collective. He used to be the CEO of the Danish Design Centre, a publicly funded institution based in Copenhagen, Denmark. He was also the Director of MindLab, the Danish government’s innovation team (from 2007-2014). He wrote many books that many of us read on design in government. In this interview we talk about his last book: ⁠Expand, Streching the future by design⁠, written with Jens Martin Skibsted.

This is the 1st episode of the serie Futures, in which we interview key players in the design scene working in the public sector in Europe. We have plan this serie with ⁠Anni Leppänen⁠ as part of her larger research for understanding the current change in the government and the design sector. We wanted to envision collaboratively how this could be in 2030.  This serie has interviews describing cases in Denmark, Sweden, Estonia, and the UK.

This interview is part of the lists: D&D in English, Futures, Diseño, Cambio organizacional, Futuro, diseño y políticas públicas, Diseño y  gobierno y  Dinamarca y diseño. The lists can be found in Youtube, Spotify and in our website, in the recommended section.
