Introducing Fusing Futures


US crazy to use future, using futures, like them up, using futures, using futures them up, using futures light them up. Very interesting thing happened last night. I got a new friend in my instagram account and it's a numerologist, and I had no idea what that was about, so I gave it a look and apparently numerologists are trying to rely on numbers to predict the future. To me that was a very weird concept, although I understand the necessity of knowing what lies ahead of you, so I may understand these choices on a personal level, whether it's numerologists or whether it's prophecy, but there are more certain ways to look into the future, and that science. However, all of us hope that our future will be bright. The science doesn't offer such bright perspectives for us. Let's talk about climate change. A...

...landmark report issued by the United Nations in two thousand and eighteen has set the clock taking for an entire planet. So back in two thousand and eighteen they said we have twelve more years for a drastic, massive and unprecedented changes to limit global warming to moderate levels. Since then, it's been more than a year and our decision makers, the ones in charge, have only agreed that the day should agree at some point. We don't know when. Maybe my numero allogist friend can help us out with this one. So twelve years are now reduced to eleven and the clock is still ticking. Eleven years can be also calculated as one hundred and thirty two months, roughly four thousand days. Do we even have enough time on the clock? We can now shift to the fields of sports. Do we have a game plan and how are we gonna tackle climate change as humanity? Should we come out with the street game plan, or should we make clutch plays in the final minutes? Or maybe we can just let go of this one and prepare for the next match?...

Unfortunately, this is the topic where we don't have a second to try. This is not a football league, so we don't have another go at winning the next weekend. Close to people is to contemplate individual contribution to tackling global phenomenon. I can tell you from my personal level I myself, as someone who's very active in the field of environment protection and climate change, have made some personal choices to reduce my socalled carbon footprint. I've become a vegetarian. I'm also recycling daily. I'm using public transportation. However, we need systemic solutions to tackle this global challenge. I have friends who are active in various fields, and one of them is technology. Dave told me that their sector can contribute as well. However, we can say that the global ecosystem is very similar to the first snow, wherever you go and no matter how little steps you make, US still make footprints. So even technology industry has certain negative impact on the environment. So is technology a friend or a foe in...

...tackling dish of climate change? This sounds like a very complex question, but we are ambitious enough to try to answer it. These questions have inspired the team of Belgrad Open school alumni to create this podcast, which is symbolically called fusing futures. Belgrade open school has the network of over Onezero two hundred alumni, including myself and my guests through this series. All of us have undergone the educational program of Belgrade Open School Future Studies. All of us, at certain point have joined this educational program in order to look for answers on how to create a society that's based on freedom, knowledge and innovation. Our pasts have crossed again, as now we are gathered in this podcast to fuse our ideas, to fuse our knowledge and to try to answer the pressing question that we have. Can Technology contribute to tackling climate change? I will be your host through this first season and join me on major podcast applications for the eight episodes long journey in exploring the interplay between Tech and climate. Let's put some...

...light on this topic or, as we say, fusing futures, light them up.
