February 25 · Issue #51 · View online

These are the best links and must-reads aggregated by Gerd Leonhard, Futurist & Humanist, Keynote Speaker, Author of 'Technology vs Humanity', Film-Maker (The Good Future) and CEO of The Futures Agency in Zürich / Switzerland.


Greetings!
I hope you are well, safe and healthy - and feeling optimistic about the future. On my end, I just launched an exciting new project with 2 fellow futurists (David Houle and Glen Hiemstra) and many other great people: The Fork in the Road Project. In our manifesto, we set forth that humanity is at the Fork in the Road: What we decide on - and what we do - in the next 10 years will determine if we flourish or perish. The good news is that’s not too late - but a lot more urgency is needed. Please have a look and join us if you’re interested (there’s a sign up form on the site).
So here are some of the best things I’ve found over the past week. Enjoy, stay safe, and feel free to ping me anytime if you need something.
Greetings from a surprisingly sunny Zurich
