About the topic | Becoming Humanity 2.0 – A journey from the heart, the mind, or the soul? 

Social thinkers in all fields are faced with one unavoidable question: What does it mean to be ‘human‘ in the 21st century?

As philosophy, history, religion, indigenous science, and western science has shown, it’s true that our humanity is defined by our need for connection – be it in our business lives or our personal lives. Yet for many of us it is difficult to stay connected to our human essence and that of others as we go about our daily lives and the fast-paced world in which we live with emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence on the rise. 

We are inviting 3 thought leaders to bring their perspectives and together with our audience unpack some possible answers to the question:

“What does it mean to be human today?”

Is it our physical being? Or is it how we think, feel, respond to the world, the universe and all of its glory? Is it our heart? Is ‘humanity’ a made-up term to create a community and develop a sense of belonging? Are we all of these things, or something more? Are we becoming something else by the power of technology and science? Or no matter the changes, the essence will always be the same?
