Being Human Festival

15 - 20 November 2021, 00:00

Creating our Future is a series of interactive workshops put on by ARU that will ask participants to discuss, debate and deliberate on key issues of future concern, and then deliver a set of recommendation to an industry or political representative.

In the style of a Citizens’ Assembly, these workshops are fully interactive, and aim to put ideals of deliberative democracy into action. Participants will be advised by leading experts from academia and industry and will come away from the sessions with a sense of the kind of change that is both necessary and possible for the challenges we will face in the post-covid world.
