On Oct 26-29, 2021 the 24th World Futures Studies, “The Openness of Futures“, will take place both in Berlin and online. The conference theme reflects the broad dimensions and dynamics of futures studies and describes an arena in which we explore the expansiveness of our imagination – an open universe prepared to deal with the grand challenges of our time, beautifully articulated as desirable visions of sustainable progress and hope.
