Thanks to worldchanging.com
I now have yet another extremely valuable resource to add to
my collection. Basically here is what it is in a nutshell.
Stock Exchange of Visions is now a website which invites visitors to become aware of the future of the planet.
Through Stock Exchange of Visions the public can see and hear a series of interviews with artists, scientists, sociologists and futurologists - people
who have a vision of the future and discuss culture, environment, resources, economy and society.
To give you an glimpse at just how far reaching and ambitious this project truly is, here is a small sample of the topics and professions represented
on this site:
Careers of a small sample of the speakers
Anthropologist, Artist, Dancer and Choreographer, Design Journalist, Film Director, Interaction Designer, Oceanographer, Philosopher, Physicist, and
Actually that's most of them as the site has only been live since January 1st.
The whole idea of the site sprung from a show done in Paris entitled Les Yeux Ouverts
Here is a smaller sample than the above of the topics these speaker cover:
Animals, Cities, Death, Globalisation, Mass media, Morality, Technology, and Water
They are also subtitled because a lot of them are not in english(at least the two I watched wasn't in english, perfect subtitles though).
Hope you guys find this site as interesting as I do, and I hope in the coming months they flesh out the topics and variety of speakers a bit more.
