Future Dreaming, a conversation with Dr David E Martin

In January 2015, ‘The Unstoppables’* took 120 of Australia’s top entrepreneurs on a floating think tank cruising around Antarctica with the sole purpose of creating and influencing a better future, by developing new environmentally sustainable business opportunities.

In 2017 Geoff was acknowledged in the Top 100 Social Entrepreneurs & Innovators around the world, and he is also a valued Work Club Global member.

  • Future Dreaming, a conversation with Dr David E Martin
    21 July 2021
    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


477 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000, Australia

Whilst on the expedition, film director Kaya Finlayson recorded a conversation with the renowned thinker Dr David E Martin, to explore the past, present and future of humanity.

Future Dreaming’ discusses the narratives that drive our economic, social and political thinking and unpacks the assumptions that underlie those conditions.

Awarded “Feature Documentary” at Sydney Indie Film Festival, Future Dreaming critiques the models that we are working with and then offers a new model, one that has existed for billions of years. David likes to call this model the Genius of the Universe; it is the intelligence that underlies the natural world creating a sustainable and successful ecosystem. David asks a very simple question – what would humanity look like if we stopped imposing our models upon nature, and instead, chose to follow the same playbook as the ecosystem we find ourselves in?

Interested in the potential of mankind? Then this is for you.
