In the essay competition twentyforty, researchers around the globe who deal with the topic of digitalization were asked to develop their utopias for a digital society and submit their radical and thought-provoking visions in the form of 1000 word abstracts along five topics: Learn. How will we learn in future? How will we teach? What will schools and universities look like? Love. How will we get to know people? How will we stay in touch? What will parenting, relationships, and love affairs look like? Live. How will we stay healthy and what will we eat? What will our homes look like? How will we communicate? Work. How will we work in the future? Where will we work? What will factories, offices and jobs look like? Rule. How will states interact in the international arena? How will conflicts be resolved in the future? Ten authors, including myself, were then be invited to Berlin for a one-week writing sprint (full expenses covered) and the essays are subsequently being published in an edited volume with more ambitious plans for their use also in open educational resources, an exhibition and further dissemination through other media.
