Climate Action Design | Lego Serious Play
A Tech4Good Co-creation session on 25th Feb | 1PM @ TinkerSpace in Kochi
## **What is the event?** Did you know that Global population will reach 9.6 billion by 2050? An equivalent of 3 planets would be needed to sustain the current lifestyles. The only way forward is to avoid the pitfall and consequences of heavy consumption of natural resources. In this 4 hour design thinking workshop through Lego Serious Play (LSP) workshop, we will attempt to tackle an important question - How can individuals like you and me make significant contributions to environmental sustainability and efficient natural resource management? ## **Oh what is Lego Serious Play?** ![lego-banner.png](https://t4glabs.org/markdown_attachments/6288/LUFTa7RN4nnUMnKHApwCXw) Lego Serious Play(LSP) is a facilitated thinking, communication, and problem-solving technique using Lego bricks. It is a hands-on, innovative, and playful way to explore complex problems and unlock creative solutions. LSP is based on the idea that everyone has a unique perspective and insights to offer, and by building and sharing models using Lego bricks, participants can express their ideas and views in a non-confrontational and collaborative environment. LSP is widely used in businesses, impact organizations, and educational settings to enhance team-building, leadership development, strategic planning, and innovation. The LSP Methodology is based on a set of fundamental beliefs about leadership and organizations. • Leaders don’t have all the answers. Their success is dependent on hearing all voices in the room • People naturally want to contribute, be part of something bigger and take ownership • Allowing each member to contribute and speak out results in a more sustainable business model • All too often teams work sub-optimally, leaving team member knowledge untapped • We live in a world which can best be described as complex and adaptive • The ease of playing enables unfiltered, unclear, and unspoken insights from the group to surface. ## **What are we discussing ?** The challenge question: How can individuals significantly contribute to environmental sustainability and effective natural resource management? This will be addressed in the design thinking via Serious Play workshop. Most of the times, the creation of the future allows participants to see their present and the imminent future in new light and allows them to make informed decisions and chart a clearer pathway taking them to their aspired destination. ## **Facilitators** ![alt text](https://te.legra.ph/file/a11ed84187a1ecdaf72ea.jpg "Laxman Murugappan") [**Laxman Murugappan**](https://www.linkedin.com/in/laxmanmurugappan/) : LEGO SERIOUS PLAY Faclitator, Game Designer and Play Based Coach, Customer Experience & Process Innovation Coach. ![alt text](https://te.legra.ph/file/849df7769012b465d2aa3.jpg "Shashi Velath") [**Shashi Velath**](https://www.linkedin.com/in/shashi-velath/): Systems Strategist, Coach & Entrepreneur.
