AHA talks with futurist Brian David Johnson on how much control we have over the future and how to see it as a story we can write.
As spring approaches, we’re hearing a familiar refrain: the return to normal. With so much attention on getting back to where we were before the pandemic, our minds are turning to the future. How should we be thinking about what comes next? More importantly, what are some practical tools we can use to plan and build a better future? One that moves us toward responsible innovation, shared prosperity, and more equitable and inclusive communities. To boil these questions down to actionable strategies, we talked with Brian David Johnson, professor at Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society.
