The Future Salon is boldly creating a world that works for all.

We are mostly San Francisco Bay Area people interested in exploring possible futures and influencing our future in a positive way.
We are still small enough, between 40-110 participants, to have a lively discussion during the Salon, where the different backgrounds and viewpoints of the audience lead to very interesting new insights.
These discussions are often continued afterward in a restaurant close by and sometimes go on until we are thrown out. Diehards have been seen hours later still standing on the sidewalk deep in conversations.
A couple of years ago I, Mark Finnern the founder and host of the Future Salon got interviewed by Rachel Beth Egenhoefer for the Switch magazine about the Future Salon. The article has some more details, especially about my motivation for doing it.
