Join the conversation on Future Day to explore the possibilities about how the future is transforming us.
Why Future Day<http://futureday.org/>? Is it just another excuse for a holiday? Is it about a nerd fetish for pop scifi?
The past has a tendency to dominate human thinking — all too often we let our lives be driven by habit, cringe at the prospect of change, and grow too comfortable with status quo, like frogs in a pot slowly coming to boil.
History is an invaluable resource of examples of what to do and what not to do. Things go best when we accept the past, learn from it, and move on.
Since March 1st 2012 Future Day has gone global with events<http://futureday.org/events-2/> being held in many countries and online! The last two years have seen Future Day events in Australia, China, the US, Europe, Central and South America, Africa, Second Life and more.
So why Future Day? Humans love rituals. Holidays provide a fantastic way of channeling peoples’ attention and energy. Celebrate Future Day each year to smuggle into people's lives an ongoing opportunity for focus on inventing the future. Let's create the context in which our intended futures thrive - and not just stumble into some default, unintentional future.
If you'd like to help create the conditions for deliberate futures that you really want: join in at the Melbourne Future Day Even<http://www.meetup.com/Science-Technology-and-the-Future/events/164542582/>t<http://futureday.org/events-2/>, or even host your own!
