Actions For Futures were created by eight pragmatic futurists in 2018. You can meet them all below.
The future is being created at an ever-increasing pace, and every choice you make helps create that future. So, what is it we need to be aware of that creates a future greater than the one we have now?
Unless we function from benevolent capitalism and from what it would take to create more in the world for everybody, not just ourselves, eventually we are going to use up the planets’ resources, we are not going to create a sustainable reality, nor a sustainable planet.
By sustainable, we’re not just talking “survive”, we’re talking about where it actually grows and becomes something even greater. You have to create a future of possibilities here.
What makes the future happen is what you do today, in the present moment. Your actions accumulate and have an effect on what tomorrow will look like. You must be aware of what your choices will create.
Every choice you make determines what your future can be. So when you make a choice, recognize what possibilities or limitations are being generated with that choice.
One of the most important things we can do to begin creating different possibilities is to consciously and deliberately making a choice to create something greater in the world. It’s crucial to recognize future implications for our choices and for everything we do.
What future is being created by your choices? By our our choices? Today?
