How To Nurture A Future Mindset Virtual Keynote By Futurist Gerd Leonhard #education #futureofwork
This is the complete recording of my keynote at the 1st Mawhiba Global Conference on Giftedness and Creativity Nov 8 2020, see https://www.mawhiba.org/en/GCGC/Pages... for details.
Technology is exponential, but humans are not.
Whatever is easy for a computer is hard for a computer, and vice versa.
The more we connect the more we must protect what makes us human.
Technology is not what we seek but how we seek.
The biggest danger, today, is not the machines will take over, but that we become too much like them.
My book "Technology vs Humanity" is now available as audio and in different languages (you can stream the first chapters for free).
What is the #ForkInTheRoadProject?Gerd Leonhard's Presentation at Sarasota Institute
My presentation at today's event in Sarasota FL (virtually of course).
The Fork In The Road Project is named after Buckminster Fuller and has been initiated in 2021 by futurists David Houle, Glen Hiemstra and Gerd Leonhard. We are aiming to start a global narrative that brings 4 existential issues (climate change, capitalism, exponential technological change and human enhancement) into a sharper and wider public focus, and ultimately catalyses real action by leaders around the world.
The #forkintheroadproject is a global initiative to elevate awareness and create urgency around the major issues confronting humanity this decade. Three futurists- one of whom is David Houle, a co-founder and managing director of the Institute- have initiated this project this year.

Futurist Gerd Leonhard Keynote Excerpt on 10 GameChangers and #Megashifts Tesisquare Italy
This is an excerpt of my keynote on the future of technology and business at the CSCMP / Tesisquare Round-Table on Feb 25 2021
Today’s technology is moving faster than ever. It continues to evolve at a rapid pace and open up to what’s happening next. New game-changers such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), new human-machine interfaces (such as voice-control and intelligent bots) can lead transformation and bring new opportunities to business. With the current wave of change, companies may need to think outside the box and leverage rapid advancements to benefit today and in the future.

A conversation with Futurist Gerd Leonhard: What is TheGoodFuture and how can we design it?
SPECIAL PREMIERE! This is a very special audio-version derived from a video session in my living room here in Zurich / Switzerland, in a very personal and more intimate setting. In a conversation with my producer Rob Holub I reflect on the theme of my next film (which will be shot in beautiful Lanzarote / Canary Island in May this year) called THE GOOD FUTURE, such as:
What kind of methods do I use to find and formulate my key foresights, and how do I 'come back from the future'? Why do you think that the future is a MINDSET not a time-frame? Why are we at the pivot point of exponential change; why is NOW so different, and why will the next 10 years bring more change than the previous 100 years? Who will define what GOOD actually is? How will we agree on how to design 'the good future'? If capitalism as we know it is unfit for the future failing us, what are the alternatives?
The Future isn't something that just falls down on us; it is something we create, every day, by action or by inaction. The future is ours to win or to lose. We will have all the tools, but will we have the TELOS (the wisdom and the purpose)?

European Liberal Forum OwnTheFuture Online Event March 10 2021, Keynote by Futurist Gerd Leonhard
In this talk, I comment on the Covid-19 "Infodemic" and what it means for the future of (social) media and technology regulation, and describe what challenges to our economic and social models may emerge. I outline my key ‘definitive future’ foresights such as the End of Oil and Global Decarbonization, the dawning 'human renaissance' and the imminent action on global warming. I also present my ‘preferred futures’ such as a sustainable capitalism (people planet purpose and prosperity), the rise of digital ethics and a new multilateralism.
