APF Mexico City ProDev: September 9-10
"The Praxis of Professional Futurists": Models, Methods and Tools

WHAT: The Association of Professional Futurists will host its first ProDev in Latin America entitled, "The Praxis of Professional Futurists." The workshop will start on Monday the 9th at 7:00 pm and continue through Tuesday, September 10th until 4:30 pm.

THEME: Our ProDev theme is "The Praxis of Professional Futurists: Models, Methods and Tools."
