Round table in inglese
Desired, possible, plausible, probable, one of these futures only will become reality. Foresight activities offer you the tools and methodologies to anticipate these futures from different angles. Focusing on technologies, you will quickly realize that the innovations they enable will have societal, environmental, legal and even political impacts. How do you consider and make your stakeholders aware of the opportunities and drawbacks they offer? From conferences to workshops, from science-fiction to interactive narratives, from serious gaming to simulations, you will discover how invisible elements become visible, how unpredictable developments become predictable and how from only observing the present, you can act and shape the future… your future!
