Next-GenNarrative (NGN)

Creative Leadership Think-Tank

With Design’s maturing and today’s universal use, there is need to update and overhaul the design process in alignment with current and ongoing new developments. A new awareness and a new set of values are needed if it is to rise to the challenges of the 21st century.

The Next-GenNarrative (NGN – pron. engine) Think-Tank is a seedbed and a hotbed of provocative, disruptive, 'out of the box' thinking. The NGN Think-Tank gathers the most respected and innovative practitioners from around the world to distill the "big issues" to their essence and propose new design solutions. In a re-invention of existing cultural narratives, the context must always be to ask not simply how to solve problems of such issues as climate change, environmental degradation, food/ water shortages, displaced populations, responsibly imagining future living, strategic solutions for growth, and many, many more, but how design must change to solve them.

Design is for Social Good.

Globally We Design

NGN Think-Tank is independent and consists of the GloWD Emerging Innovators + Influencers Network (GloWD EIN) team who work in direct collaboration with the GloWD Core Team to engage the broader GloWD community and world to investigate these ideas potential solutions.

Outside this group, a larger assembly of creative leaders and collaborators from across the world are brought together to discuss, deliberate and explore new possibilities while sharing knowledge and insights.

The cerebration and conceptualization, 'blue sky' process of this GloWD NGN Think-Tank feeds directly into GloWD's CoDesign experimentation, installation and prototyping – where through inter/intra-disciplinary, collaborative means, ideas are manifested for experience and public critique.
