What would it mean to redesign our institutions, democracies, and our very ways of thinking to look beyond the present and build a better future? Join us on Friday 30th September to find out in a discussion co-hosted with Oikos Journal.
Trapped in the logics of elections, business quarters, and instant news, our society struggles to both consider and address its long-term challenges. Even as the world that awaits future generations becomes grimmer, the dilemma persists. Author of The Good Ancestor, Roman Krznaric, calls for long-term thinking of recent years.
Not your standard panel debate, this discussion will be participatory, a chance to ask questions and bring your thoughts on the dilemma of thinking long term in an age of emergency.
Date & Time: 30 September 2022 | 3:00-4:30 PM CEST
Venue: Room Artemisia, Mundo Madou (Av. des Arts 7/8, 1210 Bruxelles)
