Webinar on Anticipation and Complexity
Foreseeing a New Paradigm of Human Development
July 21, 2015
In preparation for the First International Conference on Anticipation, co-organized by the UNESCO Chair of Anticipatory Systems and WAAS, a second webinar on “Anticipation and Complexity: Foreseeing a New Paradigm of Human Development” was conducted on July 21, 2015.
This forum intended to explore the Anticipation topics of the conference and build on the WAAS programing on Complexity and New Paradigm. We had a lineup of presenters from diverse disciplines and had a vibrant discussion about the concept, study field, and implementation of Anticipation.
Each presenter was given 10 minutes to address the topic from their perspective and present key points, and then had Q&As and open discussion.
