We face challenges that require us to think beyond our individual lifespans to the impact we have on future generations.
Short-termism is on the rise. Reactive digital media and obsession with short-term gain pushes people to favor instant gratification over long-term happiness. As a result, we feel increasingly isolated, anxious, and reactive.
We can find a better way. Addressing these challenges requires investments, deferred gratification, and coordination. The futures we believe in won’t come from a new app or politician — they will come from each of us.
We can become the ancestors the future needs. Longpath implements shifts in thinking, decision-making, and behavior that move our society and species toward future-consciousness. We help individuals, leaders, and institutions to embrace and encourage future-conscious behavior. In short, we inspire people to become great ancestors.
We incubate narratives that invite future-consciousness, and we embed them in settings ranging from media platforms to spiritual communities.
The Longpath mindset
Longpath cultivates future-conscious behavior by drawing upon insights from the latest science and oldest wisdom traditions.
The capacity to imagine many possible tomorrows
A commitment to acting in the interest of coming generations
The ability to align one’s actions with broader purpose and vision
"Longpath" is also a verb: to Longpath means to actively counter our instinct for short-termism.
Longpath Labs helps individuals, organizations (including businesses, academia, and government), and society as a whole to become future-conscious. We help create visions of the future where all people flourish and help make those visions a reality.
