Webinar organized in preparation for the Positive Future competition, by Jean-Éric Aubert, President of the 2100 Foundation, and Saadi Lahlou, Director of the Institut d'Études Avancées de Paris
While representations of dystopian futures are numerous, there is also a great deal of research and foresight work drawing positive alternatives for tomorrow's world. The Institut d'études avancées de Paris and the Fondation 2100, in partnership with the Institute for Futures Studies, are launching the first "Positive Future" competition in order to encourage, on this positive basis, the elaboration and dissemination of mobilizing imaginaries that convincingly and realistically describe a liveable and desirable world. The Positive Future team will propose scientific events, webinars, and online conferences to feed the reflections of the contest participants.
Presentation of the webinar
Living well in the city in 2100 is possible! Faced with the climatic, demographic, economic and social challenges that are looming, technological progress, "good" public policies and, above all, the creativity of the greatest number of people offer solutions.
On the basis of existing experience and knowledge, the human and social sciences and prospective, can help to clear the way and propose perspectives in terms of social ties, urban planning and architecture, and governance.
Jean-Éric Aubert, President of the 2100 Foundation, and Saadi Lahlou, Director of the Institut d'Études Avancées de Paris, will present these approaches and show how it is possible today to design and prepare a positive future.
This webinar will be an opportunity for a question and answer session about the Positive Future contest, for all interested candidates.
