Future empathy – How can we make people better understand how their decisions today affect their long term future?

What tools might we make to enable us to make better decisions about our future? How might we bridge the empathy gap between our present and future selves?

Studies have suggested that we think about the future three times more often than the past. Some of our cognitive biases mean that we tend to favour what benefits us now rather than what benefits us in the long term. Often we lack empathy with the future versions of ourselves, our families and our communities.

FAQ'S

A hackathon is an event where people come together to solve a problem through innovative solutions in a short period of time. HackUX will be focused on how we will design for VR environments and we should interact with these technologies in the future.

HackUX will take place over two days, starting on Friday, November 24th at 6 pm until 8 pm and on Saturday, November 25th at 10 am until 7 pm with drinks afterwards on both days.

The hackathon will be at Aviva Digital Garage, 133-35 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NN, England

The goal of the hackathon is to create innovative products and solutions, as well as gain knowledge about the issue and make valuable connections.

You and everyone else who signs up for HackUX can pitch ideas in the beginning of the event. After that groups will be formed around the ideas and the hacking will begin!

Prizes are TBD. They will be awarded for the winners in the following categories: – Solution most aligned to brief – Most original concept – Best use of tool

Bring a computer and whatever else you need to get work done, as well as your best ideas and a lot of energy!

A pack will be shared with participants closer to the date with more specific details about the challenge.

You must sign-up as an individual, but after the ideas pitch you can choose with whom you would like to form a team with, team size ranging from 4-6 members.
