Like what we do? Sponsor the future!
Future Based is not subsidized by any means. With a small donation you make the difference. For example your gift allows us to run our website, record and publish podcasts, and organize reading groups. Your donation will have a direct impact on our future: Thanks to you we are able to built a stronger community; to foster new networks, reaffirm the power of conversation and asking questions.
Because we believe in the power of conversation, of dialogue, of asking questions. Asking questions can provide access into gaining insight. And as paradoxical as it might sound, by allowing for speculative futures and imagining alternatives, we make space for fresh notions of both ourselves and the world: Familiarizing ourselves with the future grants access to a better understanding of the Now.
Thank you so much for your support.

Philosophy as a form of activism
Perhaps it’s something of all times…. to think we are on a turning point, but it seems that there are so many writings on the wall we can’t ignore that indeed we are, due to technology, living on the border of a paradigm shift. In our belief our world perspective will change dramatically in the coming twenty years. It’s just that we sometimes can’t see clearly what is right under our collective nose: our world isn’t only changing, it is changing faster than ever.
Nevertheless, there is a tendency to forget the importance of reflecting on how the world is changing, and in particular what the consequences of these changes might be. In this perspective, we engage philosophy as a form of activism and use it to question the status quo and the established frameworks we tend to believe in so dearly.
Asking questions can provide access into gaining insight. And as paradoxical as it might sound, by allowing for speculative futures and imagining alternatives, we make space for fresh notions of both ourselves and the world: Familiarizing ourselves with the future grants access to a better understanding of the Now. But in many areas, too few questions are asked, or a subject is merely discussed unilaterally. Future Based organizes discussions with experts in their field to ask critical questions. Not to necessarily find straight answers, but to formulate more specific questions, and to foster a deeper understanding of the world we live in.
