An important message on the current and future state of affairs, by Futurist Gerd Leonhard (Text only)
These days, democracy seems increasingly under fire -declining globally- and stability is threatened by autocrats. What's next in Democracy?
I am here to tell the story of The Good Future. I believe in a future where the power of human ingenuity, science and technology solves our biggest problems. I also believe that humans are basically kind and capable of collaboration (read 'human kind' by Rutger Bregman! )
In this talk, I comment on the Covid-19 "Infodemic" and what it means for the future of (social) media and technology regulation, and describe what challenges to our economic and social models may emerge. I outline my key ‘definitive future’ foresights such as the End of Oil and Global Decarbonization, the dawning 'human renaissance' and the imminent action on global warming. I also present my ‘preferred futures’ such as a sustainable capitalism (people planet purpose and prosperity), the rise of digital ethics and a new multilateralism.
