Special Conference Edition of the Finland Futures Research Centre’s Newsletter Futuuri


The 22nd Futures Conference focused on the wide variety of ways people imagine futures and wellbeing in our societies. We invited participants to think of the current changes and challenges in the world in a planetary scale. ‘Planetary Futures of Health and Wellbeing’ conference was organised during 15–17 June 2022 in Turku, Finland and online as a hybrid event.

Together with 305 participants from 27 different countries we succeeded to generate multidisciplinary and insightful discussions that promoted co-creating and networking between people from different backgrounds.
