What of the future role of technologies as enablers of foresight and futures studies?

Emphasizing inclusion and a diversity of voices to explore emerging dreams of the future that overcome and transcend disruptions, it integrates values, ethics, ethnicity, culture, and spiritual reflections to arrive at holistic scenarios.
