FMG Congress: Humans 2050

maart 12, 2020

5:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Society is under a vortex of fast and unpredictable changes.
This shaky future is something we either think about too much or think about too little. Luckily, there are many different views on what everything can look like! Climate change might put at risk the chance of even living our future but at least we can daydream about it. Say, you want to know how cities will adapt, we can arrange that for you. Or, how parenting will be shaped and how people will navigate in an ever-increasing globalized world? BuT WhAT aBoUt ThE PeOpLE?!? Again, we got you. The 8 study associations (Sarphati, Machiavelli, Pegasus, Comenius, Mercurius, Kwakiutl, Sec and VSPA) of the FMG (Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences) have organized an interdisciplinary congress about all the possibilities and outcomes of our future society.

You can join the different lectures organized by each association, digging deeper in the main topic of the congress from the point of view of the different studies. The event will be followed by a ‘small’ borrel and you can have a drink with other students of the faculty. But worry not, we are all social science students after all.
