Futurist Gerd Leonhard: Twice Upon a Time - and more good stuff to read and watch

June 23 · Issue #59 · View online

This monthly newsletter features the best finds, links and videos curated by Gerd Leonhard, Futurist & Humanist, Keynote Speaker, Author of 'Technology vs Humanity', Film-Maker & CEO of The Futures Agency in Zürich / Switzerland. Topics: Technology/Humanity, AI, Climate, The Good Future and more.

Greetings everyone!
We are heading into a decade of dramatic changes and an odd kind of ‘golden age’ mixed with considerable chaos and confusion is ahead. A new era has started, accelerated by Covid19, and ‘business as usual’ is dead or dying. Big tech, big health, big green and big gov are fuelling most change in the next few years.
The European Commission is taking big steps on regulating AI (and exponential technologies in general), and so I figured maybe this is a good time to share some links and must-reads on “The Future of Europe” and the ambitiously-titled “United States of Europe”.
Have a look below, and if you like my videos please share them widely and be sure to hit that notify-me-bell on Youtube:) Thanks so much for your support and your interest in my work.
Be well, stay happy, stay human!
