The second of the ITU’s Quickfire Storytelling sessions brings together some of the world’s leading futurists to share bold ideas and conflicting predictions of how the world might look in 10 years’ time.
-> October 26, 2011, Palexpo, Geneva, starting 16h, Storytelling Session #2 F17
The adoption of connected technologies is driving change at an unprecedented rate. ICTs will transform the very nature of business, education and the way that global citizens communicate and share information. Short snappy stories will offer insights into the future, from a variety of perspectives in a variety of styles. These science-fiction tales will be based on science-fact; sometimes contentious, sometimes irreverent, but always thought-provoking, will catalyze dynamic debate.
