“The future creates the present, just the opposite of what people think. Change their vision of the future, and you change the way they make decisions today.” With that challenging opening, Thomas Frey, Ph.D., founder of the Da Vinci Institute, launched us into a morning of intriguing signals and amazing possibilities. Watch the video to hear about your future digital twin, your robotic pet, your steak dinner grown in a lab, and so much more.

Envision also recommends this 14-lesson futuring course by our 2023 World Futures Day keynote speaker, Thomas Frey of the DaVinci Institute. Check out Future Like a Boss. To take the course at a 20% savings, enroll using this coupon code: ENVISION

World Futures Day

Video of Paul Linzmeyer and Tom Schumacher

Twenty years ago community leaders met at Lambeau Field to discuss local workforce needs, creating a vision for a “community of choice.” Much of that dream has come true, but now, climate change around the country threatens the nation’s water supply and the power supply water generates. The logical target for migration? The Great Lakes area – Northeast Wisconsin, so we need to begin now to plan a responsible, sociologically smart plan for that impending migration. Paul Linzmeyer, local environmentalist, provides the background, and our own Tom Schumacher explains Envision’s plan to respond. Watch them both here.
