2022 Summits – What Will the Future Hold?

These are wild times we live in: On the one hand, climate change, war, mass refugee movements, energy crises, and pandemics; on the other hand, powerful new intellectual and protest movements and unprecedented technological advances, for example, in artificial intelligence, medicine, and astronautics. So many conflicts and backward steps, so much hope and progress – we have to wonder what kind of future lies ahead of us. In its 13th and last edition, the Clash of Realities Conference reflects on these questions and the unique role of games in our effort to create a better world.
