Event description

Description

Would you recognise Melbourne in 50 years?

Fifty years isn’t so far away. What might Melbourne be like in 02068*? Will we have talking transport, robot assistants at hi-tech health centres, super-elite AFL games played via Virtual Reality? What challenges will we work through? Let’s get a head start on designing the future, with living scenarios of Melbourne in 02068. Join in the discussion – after all, it’s your future too. Maybe 02068 will be your year. Explore possible, probable and preferable paths that could emerge for the city in the next 50 years. Embrace uncertainties, live out dreams, and take a trip to possible future worlds.

*Co-founder of The Long Now Stewart Brand says: the present moment used to be the unimaginable future. And like The Long Now, we use a five-digit date as a metaphor for long-term thinking.
