Futures Minded

2 minute read, in Culture / Social Issues / Social Networking

It’s easy for us to acknowledge that some changes need to be made to ensure a more sustainable and inclusive future for our world. But the big question is how? That’s what we asked ourselves at Hypenotic and it turns out others were asking the same thing. This led to a collaborative passion project between Hypenotic and students from Humber, Centennial and OCAD.

We became Futures Minded, a small team with an audaciously big vision; inspire action to build a sustainable and positive future for everyone.

We’re thinking that while anyone could agree on the benefits of this agenda, most people don’t get involved because they don’t know where to start. The challenge seems overwhelming. So that’s where we’re starting. On making it easier for anyone to see where they can take part.

We’re using the UN’s list of “17 Millennium Development Goals to Transform Our World” as a framework because they have everyone’s interest at heart, and well, they’ve been at this for a while. Their stated mission is to “build a better world through the engagement of people who share a global mindset and support international cooperation.”

Our team doesn’t claim to have all the answers, but we’ve found many people that do. So rather than creating all our own content, we’re showcasing the valuable work of others. And to maintain our goal of making it easier for anyone to take part; we created a website to share our findings and provide links to ongoing events, petitions and initiatives. This is a one-stop shop for anyone to get inspired, get informed and get involved.

Whether you consider yourself futures minded or not, we all have the opportunity to define our future and it’s up to us to take action. As Winston Churchill says:

“If not us, who? If not now, when?”

So let’s all take responsibility and change tomorrow, today.
