Bigtrees, the Ghent communications agency headed by Wannes Van Giel and specialized in sustainability and behavioral change, launches Day Two together with futurist Stefaan Vandist Day Two: a program that, in its own words, quickly makes companies relevant again.

Vandist and Van Giel are convinced that with the four-day innovation lab Day Two in a small team they can do all the key work to make companies future-proof, especially by focusing on sustainability. The bottom line is that Day Two wants to help companies in a world that has been turned upside down by corona, as a result of which government support, for example, will much more often be dependent on compliance with sustainability principles. Co-creation is central to Day Two. The innovation lab focuses on the three instruments that, according to Vandist, give the most grip on their own future: foresight, design thinking and storytelling. After mapping out the mission of the companies signing up for a trajectory at Day Two, and after looking at the impact of the corona crisis on their sector of activity, an intensive brainstorm follows, which Day Two prefers to call a design sprint, from which one idea prevails. An idea that meets the company’s mission, but is also relevant for the future and therefore green and sustainable. Day Two also strongly wants to help companies to make maximum use of the resources that Europe will undoubtedly use in the future to give ecological and sustainable projects an extra push. In Pretopia, Stefaan Vandist’s next book, the author undertakes a pilgrimage in which he searches for all the tools that enable people to make their own future and visits the creative breeding grounds of today where tomorrow’s world is already under construction.
