Update August 2018: For various logistical reasons, this safari has been put on hold. We are planning an interim event.

Imagine a 6-star tented safari deep in Africa’s unspoilt, untouched beauty.

Imagine the world’s most passionate, dedicated humanitarians, anthropologists, culture designers, storytellers and philanthropists.

Imagine the brightest futurists, economists, ecologists, educators, empathic technologists and emergent thinkers.

Imagine an invitation-only event with all of these specialists together for 5 days, without government or corporate influence.

Imagine solving all of humanity’s grand challenges and designing a transcendent future social contract.

Imagine public access to all of their discussions via livestream.

Imagine being able to shape and steer their conversation.

Imagine winning a ticket to be there in person.

Imagine the world’s largest ‘under the radar’ publicity campaign.

Imagine an annual gathering, tracking progress towards fulfillment of Project 2030.

Imagine no more. Imagine 2030 is coming. Watch this space.

A taste of a luxury African safari.
