Anticipating a sea-change in public attitude, with Dr Aubrey de Grey
How should people interested in the future help society prepare for that sea-change transition in attitude?
As Aubrey points out, the growing realisation that therapies to reverse aging could become available within just a few decades is going to cause a profound sea-change in public attitudes. There will be a major dislocation in the kinds of things the general public desires: changes in the organisation of healthcare systems, health and life insurance, pensions, inheritance arrangements, allocation of funds to research, and other big ticket items.
In the absence of good forethought, this could be a traumatic period of time. It could make pale in comparison a lot of what currently occupies people's minds.
In this London Futurists webinar, Aubrey de Grey will be sharing his analysis of recent developments in the fast-moving field of biorejuvenation technology, offering suggestions regarding potential large changes in public attitudes, and answering audience questions.
