Climate change. Automation. Human enhancement. Artificial general intelligence. If you find the 21st century daunting, you are not alone.
I’m the type of person that when I watch a documentary on plastics in the ocean or read about the automation of jobs I can’t not feel the need to act, to rise to the occasion. So I got started as a student, running as a Green Party candidate to shift the debate and create more political action on climate. Then in 2015 I read about the trends in biotechnology and AI and it made me rethink ‘what should I be campaigning for, and why?’. I then spent four years researching a wide range of topics, looking at the potential impact of each one and the trends currently under way.
What I realised was that none of the global issues we face make sense on their own. To deal with them effectively we need to be able to see the big picture – and have a sense of where we want to head in the long term.
This is where I’m at now. I currently write, speak and host events on these topics. I want everyone to understand enough of what’s going on so that they can take part in these discussions and help shape our collective future.
I’d like to scale these efforts so if this interests you let’s connect. I’m looking for people who understand the stakes and also want to rise to the occasion.
