Join us for an exciting discussion with acclaimed science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson and the activist and author Jane Davidson, on how we get to the future we want — and the type of organisations we need to help us get there.

Kim Stanley Robinson is a bestselling science fiction writer whose work addresses important questions of world-building. The Ministry for the Future, his latest novel, is no exception, wrestling with how to avoid an over-heated world and impending climate catastrophe.

Former Welsh Environment Minister, Jane Davidson shaped the pioneering Well-Being of Future Generations Act, which put sustainability at the heart of all government decisions. She tells this story in her book #futuregen, reflecting on Wales' remarkable response to our global climate issues.

The conversation will be moderated by Cat Tully, the Managing Director of the futures and foresight practice SOIF.
