– Long-term Governance, Democracy and Futures Research
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.
Visions make it possible to create a future that is different from the present although its seeds are in the present.
