As science and technology rapidly advance, we are faced with both immense opportunities and significant risks to our existence. While much of our attention is understandably focused on identifying these risks, it may be important to explore positive futures and how we can work towards them.
Science and Technology are rapidly unlocking unfathomable opportunities for our future. Much of our attention is focused on the threats to human existence. Little is focused on ideas about what to aim for instead. In addition to exploring the concept of existential hope, this meetup will also provide a platform for attendees to exchange ideas and connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for creating a positive future.
Whether you are a scientist, a student, a professional, or simply interested in the topic, this meetup is an opportunity to engage with a diverse community and learn from different perspectives.Our expert panelists will share their insights and experiences on how to navigate the complex landscape of risks and possibilities in science and technology. We will also have interactive discussions to encourage attendees to share their own ideas and participate in shaping a positive future for humanity.
Our hope is that by the end of the meetup, attendees will leave with a greater understanding of existential hope, its relevance to longtermism and effective altruism, and concrete strategies for how to apply it in their personal and professional lives.
