What does the future hold?

In the three TED Talks below, futurist Anab Jain, polymorphic playwright Sarah Jones, and His Holiness Pope Francis speak about their versions of a desirable future.

Anan Jain: Why We Need To Imagine Different Futures

“Anab Jain brings the future to life, creating experiences where people can touch, see and feel the potential of the world we’re creating. Do we want a world where intelligent machines patrol our streets, for instance, or where our genetic heritage determines our health care? Jain’s projects show why it’s important to fight for the world we want. Catch a glimpse of possible futures in this eye-opening talk.” (source: ted.com) 

 

Sarah Jones: What The Future Holds? 11 Characters Offer Quirky Answers

“Sarah Jones changes personas with the simplest of wardrobe swaps. In a laugh-out-loud improvisation, she invites 11 “friends” from the future on stage—from a fast-talking Latina to an outspoken police officer—to ask them questions supplied by the TED2014 audience.” (source: ted.com)

 

His Holiness Pope Francis: Why The Only Future Worth Building Includes Everyone

“A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that individual can be you, says His Holiness Pope Francis in this searing TED Talk delivered directly from Vatican City. In a hopeful message to people of all faiths, to those who have power as well as those who don’t, the spiritual leader provides illuminating commentary on the world as we currently find it and calls for equality, solidarity and tenderness to prevail. “Let us help each other, all together, to remember that the ‘other’ is not a statistic, or a number,” he says. “We all need each other.”  (source: ted.com)
