TEDx Lausanne, Switzerland, February 8, 2016
My talk took participants on a brief journey through the grand narratives of progress of the 20th century: what do visions of the future tell us about the present? What real and imagined orders hold us back from radical new beginnings? And, what will it take to become the heroines and heroes in our future history?
The overarching theme of the event was “Growth” in all its forms: organisms, data, personal, business, society and environment: “Growth is a feature of nature that we accept and seldom question. Yet it impacts every aspect of our lives. How should we manage the inevitable growth? When is growth good so that we should encourage and even accelerate it? When is growing bad so that we should control and even reverse it?”
