Yes, you got that right: This event takes place on 6 March, 2032. Don’t have any plans that day? Then join us!

During this meetup, we will unpack the time-capsule ‘Anticipated Futures’ contributions gathered in 2022, in collaboration with Lilian de Jong.

Up to and including September 2022, Future Based collects time capsule contributions with positive stories about the Future. For contributions, take a look here. These contributions become part of the time capsule zine and will be highlighted during the two meetups. Summarizing, the time capsule presentation consists of three parts:

  • The publication of a zine with the contributions (gathered in 2022.)
  • A time capsule meeting in November 2022 (location: Netherlands, Nijmegen or Amsterdam. Tickets online in October.)
  • A time capsule presentation – recap – on March 6, 2032. (location: Netherlands and online.)

Future Based is a non-commercial and non-funded independent philosophy platform. As cool as this might sound, it sometimes means we need a little helping hand of our community to make cool stuff.

By purchasing an early-bird ticket, you support this project and make the publication of the zine and the two gatherings possible. Moreover, this is a real ticket which means you have the option to reserve a seat (schedule/ form is subject to change), and you will receive a zine with positive stories about the future around December. A crowdfunding on Kickstarter will start in September to make possible the publication of the zine and the meetups.

We will reach out to you for additional information: Address to send the zine to and if you want to reserve a seat for 2032.

Please note: No refund possible.

About the time-capsule project:

Creating a time capsule is a form of time travel. Imagine a future where the world is blooming and blossoming, what does it look like, feel like, smell like, sound like? We invite you to shape the future history of the world with us.

It’s easy to see how current world problems might lead to collapse, it’s more daring and difficult to imagine a scenario where it might all turn out for the better. A possible future that can inspire us through times ahead and open us up to opportunities. Change is inevitable, it is the strongest force in the universe. It is up to us to use it for good, to accept it and adapt to it. With the time capsule we imagine a world that might look like science fiction, but who knows, looking back after 10 years, it might have been science fiction without fictional futures.

Can you read the future? Join our Time Capsule Project:

Imagine a future where the world is flourishing, where society is thriving. How do we live, work, eat, love? What technological advancements have greatly improved our life? How did we take on climate change? What role do arts and culture have? What do our laws, education system, government look like? Are we traveling in space? How does the Future smell? What color does the Future have? Pick one or all of these aspects, or choose a different one of your own preference. Next, write down, record a voice memo, a video, draw something, create a scrapbook, or anything how you think it will evolve into the future. It doesn’t have to be very big, or very long. Maybe the future is just one word.

Submit your scenario to timecapsule@futurebased.org. Or send it in via the form below.

On behalf of the Future, thank you!
