Experts from various fields will discuss trends that can change society tomorrow.

The 1st International Conference will be held on December 10 and 11 “Metaculture”… It will be held online at the site “Method” and will be devoted to global trends of our time in the context of culture and technology.

Global trends affect the economy, culture, education, technology, urbanism, ecology and other areas of life. By understanding the context of trends, it is possible to predict changes that will affect and change society. At the conference, experts from various fields will discuss trends that can change society tomorrow. Discussing the changes taking place in a person, experts will formulate a list of skills that will be required in the future.

The Metaculture Conference will bring together creative people from all over the world and help foster dialogue between communities that shape trends in culture and technology. The event will cover three main areas – anthropological, historical and cultural and educational. The event will become not just a platform for the presentation of trends, but also a place where tools for the changes required by society will be developed.
