LaFutura Global Conference 2021
November 11 and 12 | Zurich
How can we redesign Society when the future is on fire?
As we start to evolve into our new world, we reflect the past, make sense of the present and translate these insights into a better, brighter and equitable future.
So how do we get there? The key to unlocking a better, brighter and equitable future relies on 360-degree perspective on technological, social, political and environmental trends.
At LaFutura you will meet a global community of the brightest minds in trends, futurism and innovation.
Our speakers and workshops are designed to help each of you create and develop a personal and professional roadmap to building your successful, sound and sustainable future, by understanding the ‘Why’s’ and working out the ‘So What’s.’
