Aspen Lecture: The Future of Imagination

Thinking about the far-off future isn’t just an exercise in intellectual curiosity. It’s a practical skill that, as new research reveals, has a direct neurological link to greater creativity, empathy, and optimism. In this session from master game designer and acclaimed futurist Jane McGonigal, you’ll learn three practical habits that will increase the power of your imagination—and you’ll have the chance to combine creativity with your fellow attendees to foresee some of the biggest ways our lives will change by the year 2026.
