The future is now with FutureFest

What will 2050 be like ? On the weekend of 28 and 29 September, independent charity Nesta will gather about twenty speakers to explore every aspect of our future, from technology and manufacturing, to eating and altruism during the FutureFest.

What if, in 2050, our new everyday reality was made of mutants and cyborgs ? What if people could live into their hundreds while radical innovation in biotechnologies could alter human identity ? This issue will be discussed by experts such as Martin Rees and Anab Jain.

How about using forecasting, scenario-planning and other future-shaping techniques to shape our own lives ? says Tamar Kasriel.

Paul Mason and Ian Golding will speak about the future of the economic system and global governance.

Steve Fuller, Andy Miah and a several other thinkers will be discussing Humanity 2.0.

Visitors will also be able to « experience the future » in immersives spaces of performances, installations, social games and so on. Experts like Morgaine Gaye will make us taste food of the future.

Finally, the festival will offer forums, seminars, makershops and technical expositions organized by the BBC, Dyson, the Oxford Martin School, etc.

FutureFest will be divided in four sessions and will take place in Shoreditch town hall, London. You can book tickets here. If the event is a success, it could be organized in others cities of the UK over the next few years.
