“What does the future keep from us?” This question has never left the human’s curious, futurist, powerful mind. Human, the most capable and intelligent of all beings sought answers from the stars, maps and even dug for it in the sands, ways that are nowadays considered as outdated or archaic. Thus, we turn to men and women of science, literary and intellectuals who’s wisdom, knowledge and experience blown the world with their own vision and perspectives of the humanity’s future in their own domain. An upgraded and a better “humanity 2.0” with fixed bugs and a high rate of efficiency. A future, that only a capable, engaged and INSPIRED young generation, can materialize. And it’s our ultimate goal to materialize these mind-blowing ideas for youngsters through passionate, talented and inspiring speakers.
