Existential Hope

Website developed by the Foresight Institute. Many projects are dedicated to identifying the threats to human existence but very few offer guidance on what to aim for instead. The goal of this one is to map the space of both peril and promise which lie before us with the hope that such knowledge empowers each of us to navigate towards grand futures.

This project is in its infancy, we have big plans

  • Orienting ourselves by collecting useful models, relevant broadcasts and organizations generating new insights.
  • Synthesizing a map of where we came from, where we might go, and which lenses of science, technology and culture are crucial to consider along the way.
  • Publishing a living document which summarizes models published elsewhere in order to outline possible futures while detailing the aspects of our nature, culture and society which must be improved if we hope to reach them.

We hope the collected content sparks enough excitement in you that you consider contributing your favorite pieces on positive futures to our collective map and join our community mailing list. Please don’t be shy: We have a growing community of readers but we are no experts on these topics and need your help to populate the map. Please feel free to share this project with anyone who can derive or add value to it.
