Much attention and effort is focused on the threats and risks to humanity. Little appears to be focused on what positive futures could look like and how to get there.
ExistentialHope.com aims to empower coordination toward flourishing futures. We curate resources on possible futures and relevant high-impact science and technology, interview experts working in the field, and host events to foster collaboration.
ExistentialHope.com is a project by Foresight Institute, a non-profit working to advance the beneficial development of high-impact technology and science to make great futures more likely.
We invite you to join us in exploring positive futures, exchanging ideas, and joining a global community of future-positive organizations, projects, and people.
Existential Hope is a Foresight Institute project.
Foresight Institute is a non-profit working to advance the beneficial development of high-impact technology and science to make great futures more likely.
