2019, Conjectural Futures Network

Conjectural Futures Conference

2 days of foresight talks and workshops for strategists, foresighters, innovators and designers.

5th and 6th of November 2018,
Silent Green, Berlin


Better life for all – or disaster?

Different perspectives are needed to map the future in all conceivable, pleasant and dystopian facets. Varied teams are needed to map the diverse positions to what is possible. The Corporate Foresight Teams of Evonik and Deutsche Bahn invite you to come to Berlin on 5th and 6th of November 2018. Together, we design and discuss radical visions of the future and unconventional future scenarios for companies as well as for society, and set the starting point for the cross-industry open foresight network “Conjectural Futures”.

“There is no people that does not believe the future can be recognized and predicted.”

— Cicero, 63 v. Chr.
