Thanks to breakthroughs in science and technology, the future could be profoundly better than the present – provided we recognise this opportunity, and take appropriate actions.
In this vision, there will be an abundance of all-round human flourishing. Everyone will have the means to live better than well - healthier and fitter than ever before; nourished emotionally and spiritually as well as physically; and living at peace with ourselves, the environment, and our neighbours both near and far.
That's the vision of the Transhumanist Party UK. The Party is developing a set of bold top level targets for the UK to seek to achieve by 2035. These goals are intended to be memorable, clear, and inspiring.
A number of these goals have already been publicised, http://transhumanistparty.org.uk/post/goals-for-the-uk-by-2035, and are generating a rich set of feedback.
This meeting is a chance to join members, supporters, friends, and critics of the Transhumanist Party UK to take this discussion further forward:
*) What are the strengths and weaknesses of the Party's current set of goals for 2035?
*) What are the most important steps to take to significantly enhance all-round human flourishing by 2035?
*) And bearing in mind both the potential and constraints of both technology and politics, what transformations would need to be well advanced by 2025?
The event will involve a short presentation followed by an extended discussion of roadmap options and priorities.
== Logistics ==
The talk will take place in the Great Hall area (on the ground floor) of Newspeak House. Please arrive in time to be seated for the start of the presentation at 6.30pm.
