What do you want the world to look like in 2030?

2030: 12 years from now, a distant future.  A time far-flung from today, the only vision of which is presented in the form of the dystopic scenarios in science fiction blockbusters.  But what is your ideal view of the world 12 years from now? Let your mind wander from the negativity.  Do that, and you can embrace Red Bull’s latest initiative: Red Bull Futur/io.

Red Bull Futur/io is done in partnership with Futur/io, an education and research institute focused on exponential technologies and desirable futures, offering executive training, curating bespoke ideation experiences and conducting future scenario research – to support a new leadership in exponential times.

To steer away from how negatively technology is presented in popular culture and instead provide a more positive vision of the future, Red Bull Futur/io will invite creative minds from all around the world to share their visions of a desirable future in 2030 in the form of a 60 second video.  

The best global visions will be invited for the Red Bull Futur/io Academy in March 2019. Hosted in Lisbon, Portugal, this 3-day educational academy will create a unique environment and expose the top storytellers to inspiring workshops and discussions, with the opportunity for invitees to further develop and fine-tune their concepts with key thought leaders within this community. At the end of the program, participants will have the opportunity to pitch their final concepts for a chance to be turned into a professional production by Red Bull Media House.

Applications are live, and to apply you must be above 18 years of age, either individually or as a group. (However, if a team is selected only the team leader will travel to the Red Bull Futur/io Academy.) Applicants will need to go to the Red Bull Futur/io website and submit a short video of up to 60 seconds of their vision of a desirable future in 2030.  Applications will be closed on February 8, 2019 and winners will be chosen in mid-February to attend the Red Bull Futur/io Academy to be held at the end of March.
