This is a group for Futurists in Vancouver that like to think about where the world is heading.

Canadian and British Futurist Nikolas Badminton guides monthly conversations, and produces events, on the future of work, the sharing economy, biohacking, cyborg anthropology, how social networking is changing, BIG data, the dark web, urban planning, systems thinking, design thinking, creativity in the modern world, pluralism, nootropics, psychedelics (research in set and setting), futurology, and everything else that makes us wonder why does it/does it not exist and how the world is changing.

Some people are still asking what this is all about and I encourage you to read - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futures_studies

"Futures studies (also called futurology) is the study of postulating possible, probable, and preferable futures and the worldviews and myths that underlie them. There is a debate as to whether this discipline is an art or science. In general, it can be considered as a branch of the social sciences and parallel to the field of history. History studies the past, futures studies considers the future. Futures studies (colloquially called "futures" by many of the field's practitioners) seeks to understand what is likely to continue and what could plausibly change. Part of the discipline thus seeks a systematic and pattern-based understanding of past and present, and to determine the likelihood of future events and trends."

Formerly called 'Vancouver Futurists'.
