Brooklyn Futurist Meetup is designed as an authentic forum to discuss what the world might look like in ten years plus. Like the social and artistic Futurist movement of the past, we explore emerging trends that have the ability to transform our world.
Our events take place in Brooklyn where most members work or live. Topics are not Brooklyn-focused. They are open to attendees and speakers from anywhere.
Many people are concerned about our society's inability to think and plan more than a handful years into the future. This short-term perspective isn't enough as we move towards a faster, more interconnected, dynamic world.
The responsibility of examining such pressing questions is left to curious, intelligent, and dynamic people who will keep alive the discussion about the long-term implications of these emerging macro-trends. Our Brooklyn Futurist Meetup will host a new topic long-term topic about every other month with presentations by guest speakers or panels followed by discussion and debate. We encourage you to mingle with fellow attendees before and afterwards.
Our topics are unlimited. Past events looked at music, women in innovation, sustainability, space commercialization, web privacy, 3D Printing and media. We're planning more exciting programs in culture, science, technology, education, entertainment, commerce and societal relations. Your suggestions for topics, speakers, event formats, partners, perks and sponsors are welcome.
