ABOUT

Many projects are dedicated to identifying the threats to human existence but very few offer guidance on what to aim for instead.

OUR MISSION


Science and Technology are rapidly developing, creating unfathomable opportunities for our future. But these developments also bring significant challenges - some of which may even threaten our existence. Our motto is that “we cannot create what we cannot imagine”. We believe that it is necessary to start to act more from a place of existential hope. We must actively choose generative hope over paralyzing angst. The goal of this project is to map the space of both potential risks and possibilities which lie before us, with the hope that such knowledge empowers coordination towards flourishing futures.

WHAT WE DO

We list resources, projects and organizations in the ecosystem to help onboard and coordinate a global community across future-positive organizations and projects. We provide a database of information on the technologies that can help us create a more abundant future. We create monthly "Hope Drops" including a podcast episode on existential hope, NFT artworks, X-Hope bounties and a newsletter with a digest of what is currently happening in the X-hope space.

JOIN US!

We hope the collected content sparks enough excitement in you that you consider contributing your favorite pieces on positive futures to our collective map and join our community mailing list. If you’d like to support this work, we gratefully receive donations dedicated to “Existential Hope” at our parent non-profit Foresight Institute.
