Futurist Gerd Leonhard's latest findings, links and thoughts - Issue #65


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

January 24 · Issue #65 · 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.

This week I’m sharing some special high-lights pretty much across my key turfs. It feels like things are gearing up lot now, after a fairly subdued holiday period and a kind of mental hibernation due to the ongoing covid-19-challenges.
On my end, I have been very busy working on my new GerdTalks series (see below for more details - more tba very soon), and prepping for my new focus on The Good Future (we sorely need a more positive view of the future, that’s for sure!). I am also going back to real-life aka ‘meat-space’ live gigs starting February, in addition to my online ‘keynote television’ shows:)
So, please enjoy my links and memes below, and please ping me anytime or just hit REPLY and share your thoughts (if you do please change the header so I take note:).
Thanks and warm regards,
Gerd Leonhard
Futurist, Zurich / Switzerland
