The future of living
The Future of Living Talk show with writers and thinkers on the Future of Living & the Grand opening of the #EuropeReadr public reading space.
How do you imagine your future? What does the world you want to live in look like? With a climate crisis, shifting global powers and artificial intelligence changing the world as we know faster than ever: how can we imagine a future, let alone keep a grip on it?
Literature – like cinema, architecture and art - is crucial in helping us imagine our future. How can it help Europeans imagine our future and form a shared vision? What should we think about when thinking of our future? What works better: apocalyptic warnings or visions of paradise? What are the books all Europeans – from politicians to children – should have on their nightstand?
With a panel of great European writers and thinkers on the future of living and with you we explore these questions in a dazzling talk show.
