2023: Empowering Futures – Long-term Governance, Democracy and Futures Research

2023: Empowering Futures – Long-term Governance, Democracy and Futures Research

14−16 June 2023  │ Turku, Finland  │ Online

There is an urgent need for long-term futures thinking in order to sustain possibilities for alternative and creative solutions to complex crises and empower futures. For the next Futures Conference, we will gather in Turku to discuss about the futures of democracy, trust, power and sustainability, which are tightly connected to these crises.

These topical issues will be discussed in an interdisciplinary manner, on how we see futures and how futures studies can empower people, societies, and organisations for creating more just and sustainable futures. The conference will elaborate upon general sustainability and resilience challenges in the current turbulent situation of world politics.
