We ask scientists “What are you optimistic about?” And they tell us.
Some of work is under the heading of ‘narrativium’, using the arts to get over the info-dense stuff of scientific endeavour. Sounds complicated? Actually huge fun and gets us staging stuff, singing and dancing with all sorts of creative people. Our latest: The Hand That Feeds, a musical about food crime.
We also set up a New Optimists Forum where scientists from diverse disciplines give their informed perspective on the huge challenges facing humanity in the 21st century.
