More than 400 of the world’s leading futurists, experts, top officials and innovators are expected to attend the Dubai Future Forum, slated to be held on October 11–12. The forum is organised by the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) and will also see the participation of over 45 international organisations specialised in designing the future of different key sectors to discuss, debate and predict the future trajectory of the world.
Through 30 sessions over the course of two days, the participants will focus on four main themes, namely the ‘future of our world’, ‘mitigating existential risk through foresight’, ‘value and humanity, and ‘hedging our bets through foresight.’
Hosting the forum is a testament to Dubai’s efforts in fostering collaborations and attracting global experts to analyse and anticipate the future and the opportunities and challenges it withholds. Throughout the two-day event, the forum will discuss diverse key topics for governments, economies and societies.
The forum supports unique visions that have the potential to draw a clearer picture of the most impactful future transformations and ways to prepare for them. It is part of DFF’s efforts to make Dubai a global destination for future experts and a knowledge hub for foresight in cooperation with key partners including governments, global organisations, startups and entrepreneurs from the UAE and globally.
