This event will take you 10 years into the future, to explore the forced migration challenges we may face in the decade to come. Our purpose is not to predict the future, but to help us to be better prepared to shape the future we want to see.
Our keynotes will set out big trends and questions to spark your thinking. Our panels will discuss three distinct future scenarios set in 2033. These are intended to provide a 'sandpit' within which we can explore the challenges and opportunities before us, to help us think afresh about what we might need to do today to ensure protection for displaced people in the decade to come.
We hope you enjoy this day of ideas.
