The Future Everything event will explore the theme of Tools for an Unknown Future. "The conference debates our fascination with tools as the most natural path towards social change, and open up new ways to question, imagine and make the strange troubled thing called the future," explains Future Everything founder and CEO Drew Hemment.

Keynote speakers include Mike Bracken, UK head of Government Digital Services, and Anthony Dunne, head of Design Interactions programme at the Royal College of Art.

The programme also features the Apps for Europe Awards, where ten teams will pitch their ideas for open-data start ups, from apps that find the most bike-friendly routes across a city to finding the nearest and cheapest parking.

The conference will take place at Manchester Town Hall in England on Monday 31 March and Tuesday 1 April. Winners will be able to collect their passes on the door. You can follow the event on #futr @futureverything
