Science fiction is becoming science fact. The power of women as global drivers of change is exponentially increasing as well. Countries run by women have already fared much better during the covid crisis. Business as usual is dead or dying - the next ten years will bring more change than the previous 100 years.

WHY and HOW the future is better than we think | Gerd Leonhard at GAC2021 (Audio version only)
This is Futurist Gerd Leonhard's audio version of his keynote for the German American Club at Harvard. See event here: https://www.germanamericanconference.org/
As science fiction is increasingly becoming science fact, we will likely have all the tools (tech) - but will we have the TELOS (the wisdom, will, purpose)? What is the Future of Europe, and what is the role of USA-Germany collaboration? The Good Future is entirely possible; we just need to make the right decisions today!

Will the Future be Good or not? Keynote by Futurist Gerd Leonhard at ENTEL(Audio version only)
In this hard-hitting excerpt from Futurist Gerd Leonhard's Oct 19 2021 keynote for the Chilean Telecom Company Entel and the Catholic University of Chile (held remotely of course:)Gerd outlines why he thinks the future is better than we tend to think. 3 things (he calls them the DDR) are determining the next few years: Digitization, decarbonization (sustainable everything) and reformation (the shift from a focus on profit and growth to a wider focus on people, planet, purpose and prosperity). 90% of the world will be connected at high speeds and low cost by 2030; virtual / augmented reality will be the new 'mobile'. Increasingly, people will work 'in the cloud' - and Education becomes the next big global opportunity. The next 10 years will bring more change than the previous 100 years. It could be heaven or it could be hell - depending on our actions today.

Greece Fortune CEO Initiative Keynote excerpt By Gerd Leonhard (Audio-version only)
This is a special 10-minute excerpt from my virtual keynote at the Fortune / Tsomokos Greece CEO Initiative on Oct 15 2021. In this video I outline what the next 10 years may bring, and what the opportunities for Greece might be. I discuss the 10 game-changers(see www.gerdsgamechangers.com) and present my scenarios for a with/post-covid world, and explore how Greece could seize the opportunities that are arising.
When we look at the future we must see the FRAMEWORK that's changing - not just the picture!

Forum EPFL 2021 | Futurists Calum Chace And Gerd Leonhard Debate (Audio-version only)
Futurist Gerd Leonhard was invited by FORUM EPFL 2021 https://www.forum-epfl.ch/en/, to stage this virtual debate between him (NOT a transhumanist:) and his colleague Calum Chace (science fiction writer, keynote speaker, futurist and transhumanist see https://www.calum-chace.com/about/ ). Each presented for approx. 15 minutes and then debated each other and took questions from the audience. There are a lot of good morsels here!
- what is transhumanism (and why it's a good idea, or not)
- are organisms just fancy algorithms (my clear answer: No)
- the future of artificial intelligence
- longevity and 'the end of mortality'
