by | Mar 10, 2015

Dr Jaakko Kuosmanen, Coordinator of the Oxford Martin School Programme on Human Rights for Future Generations and a Research Fellow at the Law Faculty at the University of Oxford will be part of an illustrious line-up of speakers this weekend participating in FutureFest.

FutureFest is Nesta’s flagship weekend event of immersive experiences, compelling performances and radical speakers to excite and challenge perceptions of the future.

Dr Kuosmanen will speak on The Future Magna Carta. The world has changed radically since the drafting of the original document. Large corporations have more economic power than many states, and the modern way of life is impacting the life circumstances of future generations in significant ways. Dr. Kuosmanen will examine what the Future Magna Carta could look like, and what is needed for its successful drafting.

Other speakers at FutureFest include Edward Snowden; Fashion Designer and Activist, Vivienne Westwood; Musician, George Clinton and Baroness Helena Kennedy QC.
