[cancelled] Vortrag: Futures Literacy & War, Riel Miller

Linz, 22. März 2022 – Futures Literacy ist die Fähigkeit, die es den Menschen ermöglicht, die Rolle der Zukunft in ihrer Wahrnehmung und in ihrem Handeln besser zu verstehen. Zukunftskompetenz regt die Vorstellungskraft an und verbessert unsere Fähigkeit, uns auf Veränderungen vorzubereiten, sich von diesen zu erholen und diese proaktiv zu nutzen (UNESCO – Futures Literacy). Inwiefern Futures Literacy im Kontext von Kriegsereignissen relevant sein kann, wird Riel Miller, ehem. Leiter Foresight und Futures Literacy bei UNESCO, durch seinen Vortrag zur Diskussion stellen.
