The Backcasting activity asked attendees to imagine the future in year 2050. Attendees put themselves into an imaginary scenario and were engaged in small group conversations.
Scenario: TIME Magazine has just named "The Entrepreneurs" as the Person of the Half-Century, as it was the entrepreneurs that created innovations and new ways to address our early 2000’s crisis in healthcare, energy, education, transportation, the threat of global terrorism and nuclear weapons, governance, transportation, climate change, water scarcity, and pulled us out of the Great Recession and through the transition from the Industrial Age into what is now commonly called "The Interdependent Age." The world is flourishing, it is more just and equitable, thanks to so many entrepreneurs, building innovative ideas everywhere, to show us a better way and bringing our communities to life.
A reporter from TIME, calls you (the attendee) and wants to interview you about WHAT happened between 2017 and 2050 AND WHY what happened unleashed the entrepreneurial renaissance that brought about a fundamental remaking of human civilization—saving it from itself.
