FCO & DCMS: Speaking to the Future

Speaking to the Future

I was approached by The Lunar Works & Tynos Consulting to produce a small content series for the Far Future Tech Mission, an initiative of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & development Office, and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

This exclusive virtual symposium brought together high powered representatives from Governments and Industries across Europe and the UK who lead and influence policy on emerging technology, the environment, and sustainability. You can find out more at: https://farfuturetech.uk

The opportunity to feature children speculating on the future is always interesting and fun. But this project was designed to highlight the stakes, to engage empathy, and focus minds in a way that’s perhaps overshadowed when you’re up to your ears in policy documents.

Working alone, and under strict Covid-19 protocols, I filmed over three days at the wonderful Shacklewell Primary School in London. The kids were fantastic, perceptive, and very moving.

Below are four cut downs from the master interviews.
