Empathy is essential for the professional work both in the public institutions and in the private corporations, because of the need to connect with a clients target (users/consumers/voters) that use to be diffuse, heterogeneous and changing. Given the fact that reaching empathy means understanding and satisfying future expectations, it´s key knowing how to identify, analyse and anticipate "what will be next" in society, politics, economy, culture, security, technology, etc.. and how it may affect people´s lifes in the future. Also how to deal with those challenges in a creative/proactive way. This course has an open, multidiscipinary, transversal approach; so all the international students (no matter the background/studies) interested in futures thinking and innovation are most than welcome.
