That is the question Sony and not-for-profit sustainability experts, Forum for the Future have been asking consumers across Europe over the last six months. People were encouraged to imagine what life might be like in 2025 and think about the potential of technology to create a better, more sustainable world.
The project is called FutureScapes and is an open collaboration project that has brought together futurologists, thinkers, authors, technologists, sustainability experts, bloggers and the public. A series of workshops were held to build on the debate and develop real innovations, inventions and ideas for a more sustainable future. In brief, four concepts have emerged:
As you can see, the products of the FutureScapes project are a mixture of ground-breaking ideas, inventions and models. We are very excited about these and look forward to working more with them. On the FutureScape website you can find out more about the project and the journey that led up to the four concepts.
We are really keen on getting your thoughts on the ideas so please share these with us by commenting here on the blog, on the Futurescape video or by joining the discussion on the FutureScape Facebook page or on Twitter. We’re looking for new collaboration partners to help us explore these concepts further. So join the conversation and let us know how you’d like to see the four exciting concepts move forward.
