UPCOMING (ONLINE) EVENTS:

A message from the Future Based team:

Exactly one year ago we were forced to make a shift from offline to online events. And wow, we’ve organized over 15 events and welcomed over 270 participants from all over the world. Now that Spring is slowly creeping up on us, we feel that it is time to take a breather. So, starting from March till May we are going to re-think the structure of our platform, while you enjoy your offline life. We will be back with new gatherings on location, combined with a wonderful online programme in which we aim to merge the offline with the online.

We really have a deep desire to create new things, to genuinely come together – in a safe way- and share meaningful time together.

Do you have thoughts on a new programme for the Future Based platform? If you want to collaborate or explore the possibilities of hosting your event on Future Based, please reach out to us at goodnews@futurebased.org.

Thank you for being part of our community!
