The Fountain 2015 Essay Contest On The Defining Theme of Our Age

16 Sep 2015

Throughout human history, different periods have been captured by a defining theme: the Dark Ages… the Industrial Age… the Nuclear Age… the Information Age… the Space Age, etc.
What do you think the theme of the 21st century will be?
The age of connections? Rebirth of faith? Clash of civilizations? Age of the internet? Rise of fundamentalism? Interstellar travel? Gender equality? Human trafficking? WW III? Artificial intelligence? Genetics? Cooperation? Competition? Spiritual revolution? Secularism? Values? Ethics? …
One may feel it is too early to determine the theme of what is still a new century. Yet, we believe it can prove useful to project the future and to be prepared for the coming days. Maybe, with enough preparation, it’s even possible to change the course of history before it’s too late!
So, look around and gaze into the horizon. Travel to the future and bring back some news.
