Human Progress – The Congress
Where will humankind go? How will our societies develop? What role will psychology, in particular Positive Psychology and other sciences play? This are the topics at the Congress in Hamburg and the setting of this Congress will be interdisciplinary.
Philip Streit will start with putting forth the assumption that the world is a whole lot better than we tend to believe. Roy Baumeister, founder of the Pragmatic Prospection, will clarify why it’s the responsibility of each human which future he or she builds for him- or herself. Renée Schröder, world famous biochemist from Vienna, will be discussing, how feminine human progress is.

The finale of the first day will be conducted by Joachim Bauer and Matthias Varga von Kibèd, who will talk together with Philip Streit about “What do Humans and Societies need for a Grandchild-Friendly Future?”. The evening will lead into a reception with sparkling wine, finger food and talk to the contributors.
On Sunday morning Adrienne Goehler postulates and justifies an unconditional basic income and you’ll be surprised who wants this the most.
