This is the community blog of the ASF Future Salon Network.

Future Salons are free monthly educational, activist, and social foresight events, presently in 15 locations around the world. Salons are fun, discussion oriented events, created by volunteer Salon leaders (perhaps you?) to make our rapidly changing world more fascinating, manageable, profitable, and positive-sum for all of us. We strive to be both doing-action-project oriented, and thinking-idea-prioritizing oriented. Future Salons are affiliated with the Acceleration Studies Foundation (ASF), a nonprofit engaged in outreach, education, research, and selective advocacy with respect to issues of accelerating change.

Future Salons currently exist in the following cities: Bejing, Boulder, D.C., Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Manila, New York, Palo Alto, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Diego, Santa Cruz, Second Life, Singapore, and Tuscon.

Do you live in one of these cities? Visit the Future Salon Network Page and join their Facebook, Google, Meetup, or Yahoo Group to get event notifications. If you want to help run the Salon, email the moderator and see if you can join the moderator team. Or start your own (with a different name of course) so your city has more than one!

If you are a Salon leader, or a thoughtful future-thinker interested in posting here for the benefit of our community, please email FS Network Director Brian Hill or ASF President John Smart. We’d love to talk to you.

Thanks for visiting!
