Jacque Fresco

Future By Design

The Venus ProjectJacque Fresco is a self taught social engineer and futurist – who is top of my list of people I would like to meet. From his base in Florida he runs a site and visionary organisation called The Venus Project. The organisation proposes a feasible plan of action for social change, that works towards a peaceful and sustainable future for all. He has dedicated his life to redesigning our culture.

His aim is to reshape our daily lives and recondition civilisation to not accept that war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering should be part of life on Earth. He sees that the only way to achieve this is that everyone has their basic needs met and have the ability to improve their lives through education and the ability to contribute in a meaningful way to society, and to therefore eradicate hierarchy and financial wealth. Seems like a wild fantasy, but this guy is serious and he has produced seriously cool designs of cities. I want to live in one.
