Artificial intelligence. Aging populations. The climate crisis. The world is changing more rapidly than any other moment in history, opening the door to both unprecedented volatility and unmatched innovation. The time to prepare for tomorrow’s challenges is now — at an immersive California conference designed specifically to equip future-forward thinkers to lead the charge.
As host of the Pacific Coast Futures Retreat, I’m convening a broad range of futurists, scientists, government officials, tech and NGO leaders and others to join me in Santa Barbara for an immersive, think tank-style gathering to focus on equipping leaders to face the driving forces of change. I believe that, because of exploding technology, geopolitical shocks, and worsening climate crisis, that in the next ten years there will be more change than in the last 50.
Registration is now open for the May 2 retreat, which is limited to 60 future-minded attendees.
Artificial intelligence, climate change and the aging population will disrupt millions who are unprepared. But those same forces also provide an incredible opportunity for those ready to lead change and prosper. At the retreat, we’ll immerse ourselves in preparing our businesses, organizations, schools and society for what’s coming next — because every aspect of our world will be impacted by these challenges and threats:
I’ll be joined by these future-focused innovators:
Across more than three decades as a futurist, I have never witnessed the confluence of mega-forces that we are experiencing today. In the next 10 years, some of the greatest fortunes in history will be created by those who understand the emerging landscape and are prepared to ride the waves of change. I’m fired up and ready to navigate this terrain with fellow futurists on May 2.
