The twelfth edition of Congreso Futuro will take place between January 16 and 21. It is the largest platform for the exchange of thought and ideas in Latin America, and the fourth most important in the world.

100 leading Chilean and international speakers on areas concerning the future of the planet will be part of this open space, which has been organized by the Senate’s Future Challenges Commission and Fundación Encuentros del Futuro. For the first time, there will be events in each of Chile’s 16 regions.

Under the motto Sin Limite Real (No Real Limit), the event will address crucial topics that are part of current debates and that will define the future of humanity, such as the metaverse, artificial intelligence and neuro-rights. It will also reflect on the fundamental role of science to build a better future for all of us.
