In a world where doubts overshadow the obvious & multiple problems stand in front of us to tackle, the best approach is to be proactive about the future. SOT Events is taking the right step in this regard by putting an effort into reimagining the future of humanity. SOT 2017- A World of Tomorrow, an initiative by Beaconhouse School System aims to explore the different directions we can take up in order to change the future of humanity.
Over the years, the conference has featured hundreds of activists, cultural leaders, educators, futurists & thinkers from across the world at a single platform. It is an excellent opportunity the public to interact with leading thinkers from Pakistan & around the world to discuss the prevalent issues in modern societies & building a narrative to resolve them.
A World of Tomorrow is set to “Reimagine the Future of Humanity” through five broad dimensions. Each dimension will be explored through a series of panel discussions, debates, presentations, interactive workshops, Gymboree Talks, exhibits and displays. The five dimensions of the conference are:
- A Digital Future
- A Balanced Future
- A Safer Future
- An Expressive Future
- An Inclusive Future
The conference aims to start discussion about understanding our future with the help of these dimensions. It will try to seek answers about questions ranging from “How can we harness technology more fully to create a safer world?” to “Can we feed the growing population on the planet without destroying it?” This effort will result in understanding the future in a better manner that will eventually lead to making our future world a better place.
The conference will host more than a 140 speakers in 42 different sessions during the course of 2 days. They will be speaking on topics that will cover the theme of the conference. Ms. Jehan Ara, President [email protected], an expert on information technology will be sharing her views on “The Good, Bad & Ugly of Social Media” to explore “A Digital Future”.
