The Brooklyn Futurist Meetup is a forum to discuss what the world might look like in ten years plus. Many people are concerned about our society's inability to think and plan more than a handful years into the future. This short-term perspective isn't enough as we move towards a faster, more interconnected, dynamic world. The responsibility of examining such pressing questions is left to curious, intelligent, and dynamic people. We cover a new long-term topic 4-6 times per year with presentations by guest speakers, followed by spirited yet respectful discussion. Past events looked at music, chocolate, women in innovation, sustainability, space commercialization, the Lowline, the Ocean, web privacy, 3D Printing and media. We're planning more exciting programs in culture, science, technology, education, startup financing, entertainment, commerce and societal relations.
