Join us for the seventh event in Re-claiming the Future - an online discussion series looking at how we can nurture our ability to think, plan and dream for the long term.

“Deep time” invites us to rethink our conceptual timescales by looking far back into Earth’s geological history and forward into the distant future. In this event, we explore how we can foster deep time thinking by applying human imagination to envision the long-term future and to forge creative pathways forward.

About the series 

Re-claiming the Future is a fortnightly online event series curated by RSA Oceania and the RSA Sustainability Network. For the full event listings or to book a series ticket, please visit the series page.

Humanity stands at a critical juncture: our political, economic and societal decision making is focused on the short-term and is threatening the long-term survival of our species and our planet. The path we choose from here will determine the legacy we leave for future generations. Now, more than ever, we urgently need to expand our time perspectives – to think and plan for the long term so can we reclaim the future for coming generations.
