Foresight: Existential Hope

Foresight is rich with a fantastic community, which gathers humans of many horizons – inspired scientists, innovators, everyday philosophers, and visionary activists who collaborate on seeking crucial opportunities for humanity to leverage high-impact STEM areas for flourishing futures. This group is our platform to engage in dialectical, interdisciplinary collective knowledge building and sensemaking. Our research centers on areas compiled in the website, that we built as a collaborative onboarding document about positive futures. Our hope is to provide a few shortcuts to find out what is at stake for civilization and how to plugin. The focus is specifically on ambitious, exciting futures, rather than dystopian narratives, to encourage the next generation to dream big again.
