Futures Garden: a way of imagining a Europe enriched by a diverse tapestry of potential futures

We will explore different future artefacts, that will encourage us to reimagine everyday life and society.

What if we could explore new ways of inhabiting the perception of other intelligent beings?

Or how would the world look like if new practices and technologies enhance our ways of self-reflections and sharing emotions.

We will discuss these futures together to understand the opportunities and challenges it will bring for all of us.
