The forthcoming Futures Conference 2019 will focus on the concept of agency in action and research for futures. ‘Constructing Social Futures – Sustainability, Responsibility and Power’ emphasizes opportunities and challenges related to the need for building and critically evaluating capabilities necessary for sustainable futures.
The conference invites participants to think of agency in different levels and contexts. Whether in a private commercial context, or in civil society, or in global or local communities, to what extent are futures being constructed through participation that reflects moral agency and leads to better futures for all? Can Futures Studies, as an applied practice, make a difference?
We are looking forward to meet you in Turku, Finland on 12–13 June 2019!
