On 4 September 2019, the European partners in DEEM visited Yangon, Myanmar, and collaborated with Myanmar partners to organize a training session at the University of Yangon campus. The program included sessions on futures thinking by prof. Sirkka Heinonen, critical thinking and reasoning by asst. prof. Omid Noroozi and sustainable energy futures by prof. Olav Hohmeyer.
On a break between training sessions, the participants were asked to write on a whiteboard words that described their “preferred future”, an idea that had just been introduced during a futures thinking workshop session. The participants were enthusiastic and jumped at the opportunity immediately.
