More than 70 international experts, with more than 50 ideas and projects to inspire change, will meet on 16–17 September 2022 at CCCB.

Can the future be sustainable and fair? Is our clothing ethical? Will creativity save us? How can we protect the oceans? These are just some of the questions that we will address on 16 and 17 September 2022 at the Centre for Contemporary Culture in Barcelona (CCCB) during the 3rd edition of Fixing the Future Festival organised by Atlas of the Future. Over two days, the festival will bring together more than 70 international experts on climate change, biodiversity, food and sustainable fashion, art and culture, urbanism and mobility.

This is a must-see for those who want to change the world by listening to the pioneering voices that are helping us face the planet’s greatest challenges with the most creative solutions and revolutionary ideas.
