Thinking Futures 2015

Thinking Futures is part of the Economic and Social Research Council's national Festival of Social Science.

The Thinking Futures festival took place on the 5 - 13 November 2015, sharing and celebrating research from the University of Bristol's Faculty of Social Sciences and Law. The programme comprised a wide variety of events for the general public, schools, policy-makers and third sector organisations, held in Bristol. People engaged with our researchers and came to see how the social sciences inform key debates and advances in policy and practice for governments, education, charities, health services, legal systems, and public services around the globe.

There were nine events held this year across a wide array of topics. The festival was co-ordinated by the Centre for Public Engagement and PolicyBristol as part of the national ESRC's Festival of Social Sciences.
