Hosted by the German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH) New York, the FUTURE FORUM is an interactive platform for innovative leaders in science, industry, and policy. Established in 2019, the FUTURE FORUM is the DWIH’s spotlight conference that promotes the exchange of ideas and perspectives between Germany and the U.S. The DWIH NY organizes each FUTURE FORUM around the DWIH annual topic, which in 2023 is the resilient society.
Global crises and their associated effects have a profound impact on social, environmental, and economic systems and infrastructures.
Preparedness and a basic robustness in dealing with crises leads to a focus on resilience as both a process and a property - that is to anticipate and adapt to changing conditions in all areas of society. Ideally, resilience does not mean a return to the original state, but rather a continuous and transformative advancement. The FUTURE FORUM: From Crisis to Resilience asks: What is the staying power towards building resilient societies?
