Book tour 2023: Dates and locations announced!

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of our publication Driving the Human: Seven Prototypes for Eco-social Renewal, which marks the end of the three year initiative. The book documents all the milestones of the project, while contextualizing and expanding the discourse on the several themes at the core of Driving the Human. Combining expert voices and emerging creative visions, this publication offers an in-depth look at essential themes in our current moment of eco-social transformation, and advances new proposals to inhabit the planet. Driving the Human: Seven Prototypes for Eco-social Renewal combines thought-provoking essays and conversations with powerful images and visual language. The publication is released in collaboration with Mousse Publishing and distributed worldwide, both online and in stores. 

To celebrate the book launch and the project’s last steps, we’re embarking on a small book tour throughout several European cities. From Lisbon to Milan, and from Venice to Berlin, the events will include lively debates reflecting on the three year process of Driving the Human, inviting partners, experts and project authors to think with us, sharing some insights about what comes next.
