WHY FUTUREPERFECT?

Sustainable living, and the principles of sustainability, have not become mainstream and aspirational for normal people – even though ‘sustainable’ stuff and ideas are everywhere. Something is not working.

The serious debates about sustainability are abstract, negative, and unengaging. And ‘green living’ is a consumerist distraction: not so much because lots of industries are still causing harm, but because the most interesting industries – culture, technology, finance, and others – are not involved or don’t understand their huge potential to create positive change. This is what is not working.

At the same time – new, less-materialistic, more-connected generations, who are ready for new lifestyles are emerging, and exploiting new opportunities for sustainable living that no-one even dreamt of before.

So Futureperfect has its mission to help fix the lack of engagement among normal people and organisations – including businesses – to the tremendous positive potential of sustainable living. To do this, Futureperfect focusses only on the new value that can be created, by new generations being exposed to new themes in new, experiential formats.

NEW VALUE
NEW PEOPLE
NEW THEMES
NEW FORMATS

WHO IS FUTUREPERFECT FOR?

The main focus of Futureperfect is creating activities that showcase the great stuff already happening within real sustainable living. Futureperfect offers explorations with this content – through events like the Futureperfect festivals – of the amazing work going on, and the amazing people involved. This creates a tremendous opportunity to engage new people in the positive and high-potential themes of sustainable living – Futureperfect is for all these people and organisations.
