LaFutura 2012

LaFutura 2012 in Helsinki develops survival strategies in post-everything Europe.

This year’s LaFutura will take place in Helsinki, Finland – a city that serves as the World Design Capital 2012, is one of Europe’s leading technology hubs with a booming startup scene and, according to Monocle magazine, one of the most livable places in the world.

The theme of this year’s event is after party – survival strategies in post-everything europe. In the midst of the major shifts europe is facing we are likely to see less of the same and more of the unprecedented. We will explore the key dilemmas and uncover obstacles and opportunities under the topics of hyper-local economies, new food ecologies, models for citizen action and modes of open collaboration.
