About this event

The future, as we probably all guess by now, holds many unknowns.

Decision-makers, facing increasingly uncertain contemporary security and technology environments, are enlisting the help of futurists to make informed assessments and decisions. Futurists make use of fictional scenarios to make predictions about the results of introducing emerging technologies into these environments. They break set ways of thinking, expose blind spots and offer new perspectives on key issues, decision-makers can be better prepared for the challenges ahead.

No one knows for certain what the future holds. But our panelists might have a pretty good idea. Join our panel of futurists as they share their career journeys and how they ended up doing futures work in public policy, what a day in the life of a futurist looks like and the innovative projects they’ve led. They will also provide a glimpse into what may happen in the years ahead for future thinking.
