On August 26-28, 45 senior leaders from philanthropy, development, science, design and policy gathered at a Futures Knowlab (#knwlb) in a small town in northern italy.
They came to the Futures Knowlab to learn and share experiences about using anticipatory systems to contribute towards improved societal well-being. So we asked them a few questions…
