Online Keynote Session: Hybrid Thinking: Creating a Future We Want

Arndt Pechstein
Chairman of Biomimicry Academy and Biomimicry Germany, Berlin

Online session: 3:15 - 4:30 pm
Online follow-up discussion: 4:30 - 5:00 pm

This session discussed what we need to empower people to actively shape the desired future are future skills. Future skills are what make us human. We are on the verge of a new humanism because everything that cannot be automated or digitized will become extremely valuable. It is skills like creativity, collaboration, courage and a healthy disregard for the impossible combined with a purpose-driven mindset that is key to shaping a desirable future and thriving as individuals.
