Introducing Fusing Futures


On fusing futures light them up veryinteresting thing happened. Last night I got a new friend in my instagramaccount and it's a Ameralogist, and I had no idea what that was about. So Igave it a look and apparently nomerologists are trying to rely onnumbers to predict the future to me thatht as a very weird concept,although I understand the necessity of knowing what plies ahead of you. So Imay understand these choices on a personal level, whether it'snumerologist or whether it's prophecy, but there are more certain ways to lookinto the future and that science. However, all of us hope that our futurewill be bright. The science doesn't offer such brigd perspectives for us.Let's talk about climate change,...

Alenmark report issued by the UnitedNations in two thousand and eighteen has set the clock taking for the entireplanet, so back in two thousand and eighteen, they said we have twelve moreyears for a drastic, massive and unprecedented changes to limit globalwarming to moderate levels. Since then, it's been more than a year and ourdecision makers, the ones in charge, have only agreed that tey should agreeat some point. We don't know when. Maybe my numeralogist friend can helpus out with this one. So twelve years are now reduced to eleven and the clockis still kicking. Eleven years can be also calculated asone hundred and thirty two months. Roughly four thousand days, do we evenhave enough time on the clock. We can now shift to the fields of sports. Dowe have a game plan and how are we GOINNA tackle climate change ashumanity? Should you come out with the street game plan, or should you makeclutch playes in the final minutes, or maybe we can just let go of this oneand prepare for the next match?...

Unfortunately, this is the topic wherewe don't have a second try. This is not a football league, so we don't haveanother go at winning the next weekend close to people is to contemplateindividual contribution to tackling global phenomena. I can tell you for mypersonal level, I myself, as someone who's very active in the field ofenvironment protection and climate change, have made some personal choicesto reduce my so called carbon footprint. I've become a vegetarian, I'm alsorecycling daily, I'm using public transportation. However, we needsystemic solutions to attack of this global challenge. I have friends whoare active in various fields and one of them is technology. Tey've told me that their sector cancontribute as well. However, we can say that the global ecosystem is verysimilar to the first snow. Wherever you go and no matter how little steps youmake, you still make footprints. So even technology industry has certainnegative impact on the environment, so is technology a friend or a foe,intackling thes ise of climate change.

This sounds like a very complexquestion, but we were ambitious enough to try to answer it. These questionshave inspired the team of Belgar and open school alumne to create thispodcast, which is symbolically called fusing. Futures delgred open school hasthe network of over one thousand two hundred alumni, including myself and myguests. Through this series, all of us have undergone the educational programof Belgriopen School Future Studies. All of us at certain point have joinedthis educational program in order to look for answers on how to create asociety that is based on freedom, knowledge and innovation. Our pashshave crossed again as now. We are gathered in this podcast to fuse ourideas to fuse their knowledge and to try to answer thepressing question thatwe have can technology contribute to tackling climate change. I will be yourhost through this first season. Anjoin me on major podcast applications forthe eight episodes long journey in...

...exploring the interplay between tackand climate. Let's put some light on this topic or, as we say, fusingfutures light them up.
