About Future of Being Human meetups
Future of Being Human meetups are very informal and lively meetings where attendees get the opportunity to connect with others and discuss different aspects of being human in a technologically complex future. We meet in a relaxed space that more resembles someone’s lounge or basement than a university setting, and that has been specifically designed to stimulate networking and conversation.
Anyone who is curious about the future, is excited to discuss it with others, and is willing to explore bold and audacious ideas in a casual environment, is very welcome to join us, whether you are part of the ASU community, or simply someone who’s looking for engaging conversations about the future!
Future of Being Human meetups are open to anyone, whether you’re at ASU or not — just come along and bring your ideas, your mind, and your curiosity! Space is limited, so please come early to guarantee your spot.
Meetups are guided by the Future of Being Human Guiding Principles, as well as “three do’s and a don’t” to facilitate open, inclusive and creative discussion:
- Do come ready to enjoy, learn from, and be inspired by, a diversity of ideas, perspectives and ways of seeing and understanding the world.
- Do practice a yes-and attitude as you affirm and build on the perspectives and ideas of others.
- Do find value in the company and the conversation.
- Don’t academic-splain!
