Designing the Future

Right from our childhood days we are constantly told that ‘Child, your future is bright’. We are actually made to ponder what the future holds for us. As Buckminster Fuller said wisely, ‘The best way to predict the future is to design it’. What do you think? Presenting to you something very different at your adda.

Update: The winners of the contest have now been announced. The two bloggers who will attend the 3 day INK conference are Aditi Parekh & Kavi Arasu.

BlogAdda.com in association with INKtalks present to you a contest which will make you think. We believe that every individual needs to think and act now in order to design a promising future for the world. The question is HOW?

That’s when YOU come in the picture! We want to know your ideas about how you would go about creating a better future. What does the theme mean to you? What is your interpretation of the theme? How do you see yourself designing the future?

The idea on your blogpost can relate to any theme – Environment, Entrepreneurship, Arts, Culture, Music, Technology etc. It should be original, strong and impressive, with the potential to change the world!

I have the idea, now what?

Blog about the idea and share the link with us in the comments form below. Also copy paste the code that is provided below:

Interesting, what do I get?

What is INK all about?

INK conference, in association with TED, is an annual conference that aims to fuel innovation and foster knowledge by bringing together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers on a global stage. The ideas that these speakers put forth are then transmitted worldwide via the World Wide Web, inspiring thought, conversation, and – ultimately – action.

  1. “Chance is what you’re Providing, Opportunity is what I always Look for, Inspiration is what I’ll Incubate and a Green World is what I’ll Design.”

    Every individual designs his/her life as per their choice. Opportunity is given provided to everyone. But only some are able to create an impactful design. Why is that so??Ideal, inspiration and collaboration can describe this dilemma as to why people are not able to design their individual future in collaboration to designing the future of the whole world.

    “If a person does not have an ideal he’s ready to live for, he has nothing really meaningful to live for.” Have an ideal who will inspire you to live in a collaborative way.

    People, planet, change…
    I think everybody is a social entrepreneur in their own lives. Some do it big, some keep it small. Some change the lives of people while some create an impact on the whole planet. As an Indian Eco-preneur, I see my myself designing the future by bridging the essential gap between the needs and wants, of the rural and urban masses. I wish to improve the quality of life in both the spheres by providing rural masses with employment, basic amenities and education which will encourage them to design their villages in a sustained manner. And on the other hand, provide the urban people with quality life (organic food, pure milk and water, etc.).This will help both the spheres to remain happy and encourage them to continue designing their future, wherein they learn to live in collaboration considering each other’s needs and wants.

    Don’t Dream it! BE IT! …
    When you love what you do, you never ask WHY? The currency that is important is not money, but the impact you create. Commitment towards your love is the key. Intelligence should not be in your brains but in your work. Don’t be afraid to break a few eggs on the way because failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. There will be pressure from everyone when you try to apply to do something revolutionary because you are trying to doing something which has never been done before. But as they say “ No pressure, No diamonds”. If you don’t step forward, You’ll remain in the same place and only dead fish swim with the stream. So do what you love because “What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger”.

    Be Distinct or else Be Extinct…
    There are not traffic jams on the extra mile. Optimism is the catalyst for change. All change is not growth as all movement is not forward. So, don’t try to compete but be unique and progress as an individual.

    I try to live on a few basic principles: dream BIG..fear Nothing..never stop designing and enjoy the RIDE!!!
    And there’s no better time, than NOW, to design your future in a collaborative way!!!
    So take chances NOW and tell stories when you are old!
