Dear Friends of Foresight,
For this year’s Vision Weekend, we invite a group of individuals whose thinking we now need more than ever to direct our attention to a crucial idea that is flying under the radar. Ideas are presented and discussed on Saturday and opened up for prototyping on Sunday.
The future is a collaborative effort, and it should be fun: To encourage cooperation at scale, we invite our favorite organizations as advisors into the mix and allow plenty of time to enjoy our beautiful setting, connect with old friends and make ones. If that’s still not enough, there’s always the Patron ticket to join Saturday’s Thank You Gathering for speakers, advisors, and patrons.
Saturday, Nov 2 @Internet Archive
CONTEXT: Invited thinkers provide context on their alternative take on approaching humanity’s greatest challenges. If you could focus your energy, time, and effort on one thing, what would it be?
CONTROVERSIES: Each talk is opened up for discussion, led by a panel of three fellow speakers, followed by questions from participants. Why is or isn’t this idea worth throwing our heart at?
Sunday, Nov 3 @ The Laundry
COOPERATION: The choice is yours: either follow your favorite speaker into one of the many parallel sessions to explore yesterday’s ideas in-depth or make your way to the lightning talk room where other participants put their ideas onto our radar. This room is free-style, you have 10 minutes to direct participants’ attention to the thing everyone is missing. Registered participants can sign up to hold a lightning talk via the event page.
In addition to our speakers, we’re glad to have advisers from our favorite non-profits floating through the sessions – feel free to grab them to make your idea reality.
