A one-day introduction to the techniques of using hand-drawn visuals in a range of professional contexts, including group facilitation, coaching and training.
You will learn the basics of visual language and how to use a mix of simple drawings, colour, words and metaphors to develop and share ideas, record presentations and meetings, and engage and energize groups.
Thinking that you can draw is absolutely not a prerequisite— if the techniques interest you and you’re prepared to experiment, please join us. We will spend a large proportion of the time each day practising and sharing within the group.
Engage both your right and your left brain and have fun!

The UN Designers’ next meetup will be on 22 June 2018 from 9:30am in Room VIII, Palais des Nations. (For those who are available, we would also like to invite you stay and socialize over lunch afterwards).
During our 12th Meeting, we will revisit Branding & Visual identities in the UN Family, this time with the help of Carlo Mendes. Carlo has been leading a visual identity exercise at IOM, and will be able to share his insights regarding the challenges of branding de-centralized organizations with strong regional presences, and how to ensure your brand stays relevant across all channels. This will be a great opportunity to discuss branding matters in multi-stakeholder organizations and gauge how design matters develop as compared to the private sector.
Speakers including Sami Kanaan (politician and presumed next Mayor of Geneva), Corinne Momal-Vanian (director at the UN Office at Geneva), Celine Van Till (elite Swiss athlete, ambassador for the disabled and author) Vincent Lusser, Deputy secretary general, urban projects, State of Geneva and Dan Acher (Founder, Happy City Lab) will present their ideas, works and thoughts at the upcoming “International Geneva Pechakucha Night”.
PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings held in creative cities all around the world, where local and international people get together and share their ideas, works and thoughts — just about anything — in the “PechaKucha” format: 20 images for 20 seconds each. Organized in collaboration with CAGI (Geneva Welcome Centre) and UNOG (United Nations office Geneva) perception change project, the short and visual presentations will be given in French and English.
The event, hosted at the beautiful “La Pastorale” mansion situated at Route de Ferney 106, Geneva (100m from the Place des Nations), will be followed by a Garden Party, with a concert by The Emigrants, food trucks (by the Hamburger Foundation and Saveurs Migrants) and a cash bar with local craft beer from La Brasserie des Murailles. The evening is an opportunity to network and to learn about extraordinary initiatives, entrepreneurship experiences, hidden secrets and the exciting cultural happenings of International Geneva.
How do you transform a group of people who work together into a team? Through this interactive, dynamic, and fun workshop, you will learn and experience techniques to make teamwork easier and more efficient.
Onstage, the Renegade Saints create countless new realities without a script. Offstage, they bring their skills to the entrepreneurial and corporate worlds across Europe to empower teams to collaborate, communicate and co-create.
This 45min workshop is a teaser, a taste of our (team)work. It will be followed by an apéro to give you the opportunity to discuss your experience with us and the other participants.
“Wise man” dominated thanks to the ability to cooperate and communicate effectively in big groups. We were able to build cities, write books, create incredible technology. We solved many important challenges that have been facing us.
As the pace of human evolution continues to accelerate, we can’t help but wonder: What will our lives be like at the end of this century? Will our lives be completely changed by the next technological, environmental, social or genetical evolution? Will Homo Sapiens continue being the world’s dominant species? Or will we evolve into a completely new species soon?
This year TEDxLausanne is focused on exploring all these questions as well as new ways of addressing our dreams and concerns about the future.
