Vision Weekend, Dec 4 & 5:
Across the World (+Cyberspace) & Around the Clock.

Once a year, we invite Foresight’s top fellows, mentors, keynotes, funders, and members to coordinate on the main technology breakthroughs across our biotech, nanotech and computer science working groups. We discuss how to accelerate progress toward beneficial futures, and burst those tech silos to collaborate across disciplines, nations and generations.

Where: This year for the first time, we gather this now international community with hybrid festivities across continents. Join us for a fast-forward dip into flourishing futures across different hubs in San Francisco, a castle in France, or in cyberspace.

When: Saturday and Sunday, December 4 & 5, 2021.

LOCATION EUROPE

As Associate, you can choose the daytime option to join for Saturday’s program at Chateau du Feÿ, Villecien, France. Located 90 minutes from Paris in the hills of Burgundy, the 17th century Château du Feÿ is a laboratory to experiment with ways of connecting that can be a model for the future. It is a place of possibility, of ground breaking and blueprint making, of bridging worlds and ideas.

As Ally, you are invited to stay two nights at the Chateau, from Friday to Sunday, to enjoy the evening celebrations and Sunday’s focus sessions.

In collaboration with San Francisco parallel event.
