In the forthcoming Futures Conference 2019 we will focus on the concept of agency in action and research for futures. ‘Constructing Futures’ emphasizes opportunities and challenges related to the need for building and critically evaluating capabilities necessary for sustainable futures.

We invite 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?

This conference will create a cross-disciplinary platform where participants can meet, share, and discuss new ideas concerning social futures. These two days will consist of keynote lectures, parallel sessions, participatory workshops and chaired poster session. We aim to generate multidisciplinary, stimulating and critical discussions that promote networking between people interested in futures issues from different backgrounds.
