APF Global Futures Festival 2017

The Association of Professional Futurists will host its 3rd virtual Global Futures Festival on 15 September 2017. Kicking off from Europe and Africa, to the Americas, and ending in Oceania, this festival of learning will “follow the sun" for 13 hours of hands-on content and discussion. 

This Futures Festival will be Free and Open to the Public, maximum seating 100 people at a time. Registration will open by July 1st. 

Themes: "Mixed Realities, Populism, & Teaching Futures" 

This gathering offers interactive presentations from leading futurists around the globe. Join us to watch and interact with leading pro futurists and foresight practitioners and share insights, experiences and ideas. 

Clear your schedule, find a comfortable spot, set up your favorite food and drink, put on your headset, kick back, and be ready to be amazed! If you are in a place with a cluster of futurists, organize a common meeting place and engage locally while connecting globally. Volunteer now to host a Futures Festival Global hub and make this extended virtual futures experience even more worthwhile.  

Suggested Topics: Teaching the Futures, Rise of Populism, and Futures of Mixed Realities

A call for presentations will be sent to APF members and invited speakers in early June. Announcements of speakers and presentations will begin shortly after.
