Today mankind does incredible things. Thirty years of digital revolution have brought previously unimaginable advances in the way we live and work. Soon we will be able to change the bodies we are born with, printing 3D organs to save them when they fail and creating birth-control microchips that women can turn on and off. We shape the world around us, transforming violent cities like Medellín by building ultra-modern libraries and putting moving staircases on mountains. We have flipped education to provide the world with a global interactive classroom.
Atlas of the Future is an online resource that maps innovative, future-focused, socially impactful people and projects around the world with one mission… to ‘democratise the future’. This means making sure developments are understandable and entertaining – not just in science and tech, politics or culture, urban planning or education, arts and design – but stories in every area of human activity.
Through raising the profiles of those working to create a better world, this is a place to discover the talent and energy solving tomorrow’s challenges. Because everyone should be able to understand and engage in the topics that affect us all.
