We welcome you to enter the conversation and discover new perspectives as we explore a variety of questions, including:

  • What new norms are being formed in 2020?

  • How do we reflect critically on who we hear from and who we don't?

  • What might race, class, equity, ability, gender, and identity mean in the future?

  • What are the lifecycles of transformations already underway around the world?

  • How are we designing and building restorative and regenerative systems?

  • What vision of political structures and civic engagement is being challenged, created, and reinforced?

  • How do we imagine communities, cities, geographies, and society coexisting?

  • Why should we consider ethics in the context of futures?

  • How are we responding to the scale of climate disruption from the hyperlocal to the global?

Who: The festival is free and open to everyone.

Futures Festival brings together insightful and diverse people from business, the public sector, science, academia, technology, the arts, and the humanities to re-imagine and envision the future. This gathering offers interactive presentations from practitioners around the globe, united in moving forward with a dedication to thriving and flourishing futures. FF'20 is a day of sparking conversations and sharing new ideas.

Futures Festival 2020 is organized entirely by APF volunteers, so there is no cost for registration. If you can afford it, we ask for a contribution to cover expenses. These include technical expenses for Zoom and Vimeo storage, video production post-event, and digital communications.
