Keynote: Waterkant Festival Kiel

It's been a pleasure to open Waterkant 2019 in Kiel. I was admittedly incredibly nervous, as I hadn't really talked about my work this way before. This speech tried to give a run through of how I do strategic foresight, creating a mental map of what's true now and the alternatives I'd like to see... Continue Reading →
