FuturePerfect is a collaboration platform to increase engagement in real sustainable living.
Futureperfect’s vision is a world where sustainable living is understood as living well.
This means using scientific, ethical and psychological facts – about sustainable use of planetary resources, the non-human living world, and human societies and individuals – as the basis for new frameworks of human development and aspiration.
Futureperfect believes in positively engaging people with value-adding activities and ideas that can make up sustainable living. Normal stuff – including architecture, technology, media, industry, finance, food, culture, and much more.
This is an easier, more powerful way to motivate real involvement than trying to discourage negative behaviours.
SHOWCASE OF GREAT STUFF
The main focus of Futureperfect is creating activities that showcase the great stuff already happening within real sustainable living.
Futureperfect offers explorations – through events like the Futureperfect festivals – of the amazing work going on, and the amazing people involved.
CULTURE & CREATIVITY
Futureperfect believes that emotional experience and development, based on sound knowledge, is the best way to unlock motivation towards sustainable living.
Therefore quality experiences – within culture including music, art, performance, personal development – and developmental, creative contexts for engaging, are essential to Futureperfect activities.
Futureperfect is an adventure in living well.

The speakers invited are some of the most experienced and inspiring in the world in these areas.

1000 people have experienced the Futureperfect Festival so far – and for some of them, it has changed their lives already.
The Festival particpants speakers and audience experienced are captured in the Media display.
On 18 February 2013 Futureperfect organised Nordic Food Localism at Fotografiska , with Forum and Dinner, and a follow-up seminar at The Hub 21 February 2013.
Futureperfect organise events – including drinks evenings, and local events – year-round, in Stockholm, and in countries including the US, UK, Finland, Germany, France, and more, with various partners.
To explore some of the past events, including Festival highlights, click here.
Exploration program actions have three formats – Forums, Seminars, and Workshops – working from larger group discussions, to hands-on learning for small groups.
Music & Arts program is not about using culture to send ‘messages’, instead to create a social and emotional environment that supports inspiration and engagement.
Living Well program is about personal and social wellbeing beyond consumerism – including yoga, healthy food, nature, and development of psychological and relationship capacities.
CoCreation program involves spontaneous, open discussions, and facilitated experiences, using techniques such a world café, open space, and similar.
