Originally recorded on August 21, 2020

Adam Sharpe, Director of Learning at Metafuture, believes that young people are great futurists because they are open-minded and don’t cling to old systems. In his work, he fuels youth development projects across Asia with foresight, facilitating their growth in becoming change makers and advocates for complex issues. Listen to this webcast with Adam and Kedge Principal Yvette Montero Salvatico  as they discuss how he fuels critical work with foresight.
