Hi there fellow Good Future storytellers!
We are so glad to have met so many of you on our first call this week! Here is a summary of the key points that we discussed.
Key topics that will structure our work:
- Climate & Environment – energy, sustainability, pollution etc.
- Technology & Humanity – AI, AGI, ethics of technology, genetic engineering, genome editing etc.
- Future-fit Economics – sustainable economic models for the future, what the stock market is rewarding and not rewarding etc.
Our purpose is all about creating a new narrative:
We don’t have a lot of good stories about the future. Hollywood, Bollywood and social media are filled with negative stories. For us it’s about looking back at the technological advancements we’ve made, the advances in health etc. that allows people to live better and longer than ever before and then where we go from there. This new narrative is about:
- Optimism – It’s about being stubborn, believing that it is possible. It’s about choosing to take sides in the narratives. The future is political!
- Empowerment – Encouraging and giving the platform for people with good stories to come forward and share them, and as supporters – amplifying these stories.
- Inspiration – Creating inspiration through various formats of narratives – writing, posts, e-books, videos, films, events etc.
- Change – Thinking about how we might influence lasting change in the future, for the better.
