The World in 2050: Society
Fri 7 July 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
In 2021, the Deep Transitions research project based at Utrecht and Sussex universities set out on a year long enquiry with global investors to imagine preferred futures, societies and systems, and to explore how investors could contribute to bringing those into being. The emphasis was on the futures of food, mobility, and energy, three linked systems in which changed investment practices, governance and policy, and day to day shifts in human behaviour can have the biggest impact in how we transform society in a way that is good for the planet.
Victoria Ward was a co-facilitator, both of the panel and of the world building process. Her talk will share some of the insights from the three future worlds: Do No Harm, The Frugal Turn, and Earthshot, as a starting point for audience discussions about what society looks and feels like in the future(s) of 2050, and how we might, from today, think about our own commitment to be good ancestors.
