Renewable Futures aims to invent new avenues for more sustainable and imaginative future developments. The first conference took place in Riga (LV), from October 8–10 2015, exploring the transformative potential of art. The second Renewables Futures conference will take place in Eindhoven, aiming to push the boundaries of our thinking about economy. The two-day conference is part of Economia festival.

The Renewable Futures is a new conference series in the Baltic Sea and North European region. It will shape new contact zones between traditionally separated domains – art and science, academic research and independent creative practices, sustainable businesses and social engagement in the 21st century.
The Renewable Futures program is a European multiannual program led by The Centre for New Media Culture RIXC (Latvia). The program connects art, science and business. The 2017 theme of Renewable Futures is economy. Therefore, the second Renewable Futures conference will be held during the Economia festival. Renewable Futures is a collaboration between seven European partners: RIXC, Baltan Laboratories, Ars Longa, HOGS COAL I OLSLO OG AKERSHUS, AALTOKORKEAKOULUSAATIO, Fundacio privada AAVC and Liepaja University.
