What we're about

Imagine, explore, and create better futures for all.

Speculative Futures explores situations and stuff from the future. Rather than approaching critical issues like climate change and AI as abstract, far-out possibilities, we interact with future problems as if they’re happening to us here and now. We experience the future to create present-day strategies for a better tomorrow.

Through talks, workshops, panels, prototyping sessions, we will:

Imagine the possibilities
Create the futures we collectively want
Explore timely topics of interest
And more!

Meetups will feature a variety of speakers and experts.

Events coming soon.

Speculative Futures is an international series of Meetups created by the Design Futures Initiative (DFI), a not-for-profit based in San Francisco, CA. Join us at your local chapter or at our upcoming conference, Primer 2019.
