Theme: Future of Humanity: The Big Picture
Steve Jobs once said the best way to predict the future is to invent it. That is a clever way of dancing around the inherent dangers of long-term forecasting. Indeed, looking into to the future is by no means an easy task. It requires considerable knowledge and understanding of not only today’s realities but also much reflection on how we humans got to where we are. The past few centuries have witnessed tremendous change, a trend which in an ever shrinking world, stands to only intensify. Human beings moreover, continue to lead the sensible exploration of both the risks and opportunities arising from contemporary global change. TEDxGoodenoughCollege delves deep into “big-picture” questions of Human civilization in the long term. As such, presentation/talks come from a variety of disciplines such as science, medicine, politics, technology, and the arts. Although distinctly diverse, all of thesefields shape our common future and promote ideas worth spreading on a global scale.
Exploring both the dangers and limpid avenues arising from technological change, weighing in on ethical dilemmas, and re-evaluating global priorities, our aim is to contribute in making the greatest positive difference in shaping the future of Human kind.
