¿Do we feel prepared for the crises we will face?
Authors have recently published an infographic book entitled Emerging Reservist Cultures that urges stakeholders, policymakers, industry leaders, researchers, creators, and the general public to develop collaborative production networks prepared to design, manufacture, certify, and distribute needed products and services when emergencies are declared. The book reflects upon activities conducted during the European project “Reservist,” where an extended network of stakeholders shared their experience building a reservist network and envisioning how these could be deployed in prospective emergency scenarios.
In this workshop, participants experience the design research methodology of the book design and envision future scenarios with cards, physically browse the book pages, and collectively discuss the findings. The workshop encourages reflection upon new methods and design experiences at the intersection between resilient systems, local manufacturing and community engagement.
