Are you ready to Bold.ly reimagine human life on this planet?
I feel we all want to answer “yes” to that question. After all, isn’t that the right answer? Isn’t that what’s needed now?
But for some of us, considering how seemingly hard it is to make even small changes, reimagining human society, culture, government, economics and… all of it’s daunting at best and sometimes frankly overwhelming. We’re just not ready to reimagine human life. Taking it one step further, we can have a pretty grim view of the future – so grim that we want to pull our heads under the covers and binge watch until the end of the universe.
So how can we Bold.ly reimagine life?
For a start we can see our grim view of the future as just that – a view of the future, not the truth about the future. Positive or negative our view of the future is generated by our brain based on past experience. You and I don’t have to do anything to have our view of the future – it’s automatically there – its our default, likely dystopic, version of the future.
If we can see our default/automatic view of the future as merely a view, we have a certain freedom to reimagine the future, to reimagine life. And, this is one of the key practices of a generative futurist: to acknowledge the past-based automatic view of the future, and then step out and imagine a new future, one not limited by the past.
That’s part of why we publish this news magazine – to provide stories of people who are actively bringing about a thriving future. To prove that it is possible and that it is happening. And ultimately to encourage each of us to boldly reimagine life on this planet.
So I’ll ask again:
Are you ready to boldly reimagine human life on this planet?

What We’re Watching : Is France’s groundbreaking food-waste law working?
A third of the world’s food goes to waste, but France is attempting to do something about it. Since 2016, large grocery stores in the country have been banned from throwing away unsold food that could be given away. Watch this short video to find out all the positive benefits that have occurred since the law was put in place.
What We’re Reading – Ministry for the Future 📔
“The Ministry for the Future is a masterpiece of the imagination, using fictional eyewitness accounts to tell the story of how climate change will affect us all. Its setting is not a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, but a future that is almost upon us—and in which we might just overcome the extraordinary challenges we face.”
