THEME:
THINK BEYOND NOW

Our theme is “Think beyond the now”, it means to become forward-thinking and look after what we are borrowing from future generations. The future is unpredictable in the 21st century, we can’t see the future, but we can think about the future. Many of the greatest inventions still have utility today because those inventors thought beyond the now. Economists try to design a lot of models because they want to think beyond the now. Education is ubiquitous because people need it to think beyond the now. Environmentalists are becoming anxious because if we don’t think beyond the now, it will be us who have to live with the consequences of what we do or refrain from doing today. Thinking beyond the now may be the last bulwark against many global problems. Jeremiah is a Hebrew major prophet who foresaw the fall of Assyria while everybody took a sceptical attitude. He did think beyond the now, but he failed to convince others to believe him. Thinking beyond the now isn’t only about inward thinking. To make it meaningful, we have to spread the voices and persuade others. In this event, we don’t simply think, but to talk, to share, to inspire and ultimately to change.

主题

超越当下

我们的主题是“超越当下”,这意味着要变得有远见,并照看好我们从未来一代那里借来的东西。未来在21世纪是不可预测的,我们看不到未来,但我们可以去思考未来。今天,许多伟大的发明仍然具有实用性,因为那些发明家的想法超出了现在。经济学家试图设计许多模型,因为他们想超越现在。教育无处不在,因为人们需要它来培养超越当下思考的能力。环保主义者正变得焦虑不安,因为如果我们不考虑现在以后的事情,那未来我们必将忍受今天所做或不做的后果。超越现在的思考可能是应对许多全球性问题的最后堡垒。耶利米是希伯来的著名先知,他预见了亚述的陷落,而每个人都持怀疑态度。他的想法确实超出了现在,但他未能说服其他人相信他。超越现在的思考不仅涉及内在思维,如果要使其有意义,我们必须发出声音,去说服他人。在这次活动中,我们不仅是在思考,而是在交谈,分享,启发并最终做出改变。
