the future. Experts, outstanding artists, designers, scientists and
visionary thinkers from all over the world will convene for four days
during the festival to discuss ideas and formulate creative questions
having to do with three main themes: Future Humanity Future Work
Future Home Last year’s Summit brought 24 Future Innovators from
throughout the world to POSTCITY, our extraordinary festival location
in Linz, Austria, where they engaged in creativity-enhancing
encounters with Future Humanity, Future Education and Future Commons.
To find out exactly what that means, check out the check out the
