Futur/io – the European Institute for Exponential Technologies & Desirable Futures – is inspiring a new culture of entrepreneurship and innovation.
In an age which is being defined by exponential technologies, old habits need to die fast. A moonshot mindset imbued with a practical understanding of how to make big ideas happen are the tools leaders and businesses will need to excel. In the context of a climate crisis threatening humanity, this success must be achieved sustainably though. And it is these multiple realities that Futur/io is responding to. Not only does it have a faculty of futurists with the insight on how to do this, developed from their first-hand experiences in delivering transformative change inside the world’s biggest brands, and across a range of industries, the Institution also contributes to the * Resilience Frontiers initiative, a new interagency effort which is championing a ‘collective intelligence process on how best to respond to the deep societal transformations driven by emerging technologies and new sustainability trends, and maximize resilience to climate change beyond 2030’.
* Resilience Frontiers is an interagency effort undertaken by the UNFCCC secretariat in collaboration with Canada’s International Development Research Centre, EIT Climate-KIC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Global Water Partnership, the Green Climate Fund, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
