If 2018 was a reckoning, 2019 is the year to start doing something about it. We hope that maybe, as a species, if we took a few steps back last year, it was only so we could make a good running leap in the right direction this year.
TOMORROW is here — time for action
TOMORROW is C2 Montréal’s theme in 2019, a year of personal responsibility, of knowing that big government and big tech — and big ideas by themselves — won’t be our salvation. It’s a year for finding the creativity and drive required within ourselves before getting down to the business of making change collectively, collaboratively and concretely.
As American whistleblower, and C2 2018 speaker, Chelsea Manning put it, “a lot of problems are reinforced because there’s an expectation that someone will fix them. Nobody does. It’s our individual responsibility to do something.”
So what can you do? Read on. The following features offer practical approaches, actionable advice and a good ol’ dose of inspiration from those already working the fields for a better tomorrow.
Making big tech society-centric
Chelsea adds her voice to a growing chorus of technologists, experts and activists making a case for programming moral codes into tech development.
Investing in Earth
Profit and saving the only world we have need not be mutually exclusive terms.
Rethinking our structures
Small acts can overhaul big systems. Whether it’s reimagining manufacturing with natural materials or cleaning up your supply chain, you can start today.
Walking the talk
Challenge the people who say it can’t be done. Change the paradigm. Cultivate creative approaches. From the man who flew ’round the world on solar power, this last story is about kicking down the doors and showing the world what’s possible.
See you at C2 Montréal May 22 – 24, 2019.
