VIDEOS

Alianza Futurista often covers futurist events, book presentations, interviews about relevant subjects, etc. Our videos are organized as YouTube Playlists, and they are here.

 

We recently shot the TransVision 2018 conference at the Ateneo in Madrid, and are currently editing the videos. If you would like to receive notifications when videos get posted, please subscribe to our YouTube channel, and click on the bell next to it in order to receive notifications.

 

We have prepared a video gallery about subjects that we are interested in. We hope that you find them interesting. The gallery will grow and change over time.
