This is the audio recording of the inaugural Fork Talk event that took place May 13th 2021. The Fork In The Road Project is named after Buckminster Fuller and was initiated in early 2021 by futurists David Houle, Glen Hiemstra and Gerd Leonhard. The Fork Project is aiming to start a global narrative that brings 4 existential issues (climate change, capitalism, exponential technological change and human enhancement) into a sharper and wider public focus, and ultimately catalyses real action by leaders around the world. This inaugural, free FORK-TALK event featured the 3 initiators as hosts, and 4 world-renowned keynote speakers presenting a short talk each, followed by Q&A: Brenda Cooper on the Role of Science Fiction as a Visionary Tool David Houle on Facing the Climate Crisis Bronwyn Williams on Re-Writing the Social Contract Philip Kotler on Is World Capitalism Ready for Nordic Capitalism?
