How will our country change in the upcoming 35 years? Will cities turn into anonymous dormitories? Will we cease to be a homogenous nation? Will the Europe we know break into pieces and age? And how will the world change? Will the United States still be the hegemonic leader? What about China, Russia and South America? Already tomorrow, on 23 June at 18.00 at Wolności Square, the first of the series of three meetings Poland. Europe. Year 2050 will be held.
