the world is better than you think

A mind-blowing journey through scientific breakthroughs, disruptive technologies and social advancements that are creating a better future for the human race.

 

New stories can help us imagine many futures, and direct our imaginations towards the futures we want. This story is about people who are making the world a better place. It's about opportunities and solutions, rather than problems and threats. It's a story that's informed by a belief that optimism doesn’t have to be a reaction to the world around us; it can also be a tool by which we affect the world around us. 

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with insights into technologies that are creating a new narrative for mankind, and the science behind them. They'll learn how our cognitive biases distort our view of the world, making us feel unnecessarily pessimistic, and preventing us from achieving our true potential. 

Participants will gain a renewed sense of hope, purpose, and commitment to problem solving, innovation and organisational change.

Key Outcomes

  • Gain insight into scientific and technological trends shaping the world
  • Understand cognitive biases to create a new outlook on the world we live in
  • Gain tools to find meaning and activate purpose
  • New and unusual insights into innovation and change

Future Crunch are dangerous. Their optimism flies in the face of lazy, nihilistic doomsday prophets that pedal sensationalist stories about how we might as well give up because the end is nigh. They force you to take action, by pointing to the incredible achievements we as human beings accomplish each and every day.

Not denying the very real and dangerous threats we face as a species and as a consequence our planet, but enforcing the fact that our actions make a difference, and we can solve the problems that face us. Go listen to them - they’ll change your life.

Hundreds of speakers have taken the stage at REMIX Summits across the globe and I have been privileged to see some incredible talks over the years. Future Crunch are part of a rarified group that stand out from the rest.

They use vivid imagery, humour, statistics and soundscapes to convey powerful and important messages that challenge you to think again about the world. This magic combination of ingredients makes them compelling storytellers and guides to an age of fundamental change where everyone needs to understand the forces and trends that continue to reshape everything we know.
