ABOUT THE FUTURES PROJECT

The Futures Project (TFP) brings together values-based visions for the future of mankind and the planet with innovative ideas that make them possible.

TFP was born out of the need to change the way we approach innovation, technology and our futures. Too often, the creation of new technology is celebrated as a desirable end in and of itself. Innovation, sustainability, and impact have become mere buzzwords. We have lost sight of the big picture – where do we want to go and why – and of our responsibility for future generations. We are missing opportunities to make real & meaningful change, for all of us.

We build and support a global community of future-oriented changemakers. We work across sectors and generations to create shared visions for our collective futures and innovation to achieve systemic change.

Letter from the Founder

Welcome. Thank you for your interest in The Futures Project. It’s my pleasure to introduce to you the work we are doing—work I believe strongly in and invite you to join.

Dr Julia Stamm, Founder and CEO

I founded The Futures Project as a nonprofit entity in 2019 after many years of working at various intersections of science, technology, and policy. Throughout my work, I encountered brilliant research, exciting new technologies, and plenty of people who were passionate about changing the world for the better. However, I felt that we often lost sight of the big picture and were missing opportunities to make real change.

To tackle the global and societal challenges we face, we need to come together across borders and sectors to envision the futures we want to see. We need to thoughtfully create solutions based on these visions that put empowerment, healthy societies, and life of people and planet at the center.

The Futures Project was created to be a home for these ideas, which I believe are central to building a resilient future. We are committed to advancing and supporting a thoughtful, holistic approach toward imagining the futures we want to see and doing the innovative work we need to realise them.

Building the futures we want to see requires us to reflect on what we value. It requires us to re-think, re-imagine, and find new ways to work together. At TFP, we believe that we all have a role to play in building a better future, and this commitment is at the heart of our work.

We invite you to join us on this path.
