What is it?

The whole world is undergoing a period of constant and drastic change. The fast-paced development of new technologies, together with the emergence of new regulations and economic factors that have an impact on both the domestic and international realms, is affecting the generation and distribution of goods, as well as the behavior of consumers, making it necessary to adopt a holistic, multi-discipline approach in order to be able to formulate comprehensive proposals that will have an effect on both Mexico and the world.

THE ORIGINS OF THE FUTURE is a space open to dialog and action, in which internationally acknowledged personalities, including specialists, philanthropists, researchers on human behavior and in general an eclectic multi-disciplinary mixture of people, will have just 14 minutes to talk about their most thought-provoking ideas in trying to break away from old paradigms and to liberate the creative potential of attendees. How can creativity contribute to the framework of new policies, in order to ensure development?, Which are the key tools for developing new technologies that address generation, distribution and consumption?, How can new technologies have an impact on geo-political transformation? These are all questions the answer to which must be approached from different vantage points that allow constant innovation.

The different subjects will be grouped in the following general blocks:

ORIGINS OF IMAGINATION in order to discover new ways of doing more with the same resources, in keeping with the dictum of the famous physicist Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge”.

ORIGINS OF MEANING if we want to know how to attain our goals and how to know what these goals should be, we should first answer the question: “Where are we?” and “Where are we coming from?”

BECAUSE, IN THE XXI CENTURY, WEALTH SPRINGS FROM CREATIVITY, RESEARCH AND INNOVATION. A SOCIETY THAT DOES NOT BET ON INNOVATION, THAT DOES NOT INVEST IN NEW KNOWLEDGE, THAT DARES NOT IMAGINE, WILL FAIL AT DEVELOPMENT.
