Being Human: The Future of Our Kind

Being Human: The Future of Our Kind
4 sessions, 8 hours

Where is humankind headed in the next ten years, hundred years, thousand years? How will we live, eat, work, and play? How will we supply our energy, health care, and housing needs? Will science and industry provide us with the answers? Together, we’ll explore the possibilities. In this fourth installment of the popular Being Human series, we’ll examine the greatest challenges of the future from the perspectives of social science and the humanities. This class features lively discussions plus an opportunity for you to engineer a hypothetical human society of the future.
