Links in this week’s instalment

1. The New World Manifesto project launched a few weeks ago. It is a call for the NWSH community to come together and articulate the principles we believe should guide us all as we rebuild in the 2020s.

2. Discussion for the New World Manifesto project is already underway in the NWSH Slack group.

3. James Lovelock’s The Novacene and Max Tegmark’s Life 3.0 are both books that helped inspire this newsletter.

Come together

Thanks for listening this week.

The New World Manifesto project is taking shape. It’s chance for all of us – for you – to share thinking on how we should rebuild in the 2020s.

What are the fundamental principles you think should guide us? Are they around the human relationship to technology? The future of cities? Of work? Equality?

In the weeks ahead, I’ll share the process via which we’ll conduct a collective conversation.

The Manifesto will be powerful only if it distils a wide and diverse a range of voices. And there’s one thing you can do to help ensure that happens: share!

So if you know others who’d make a valuable contribution to our conversation – and I bet you do – then why not take a second to share this note with them? Just forward the email along. Or share it across one of your social networks, with few lines on why you found it valuable. Just hit the share button:
