Passport for the Future:
Why We Need to Re-Design the Planet

Sustainability Series

Michel Saloff-Coste

  • President, Design Me a Planet

Saloff-Coste is recognized in Europe, America, and Asia as a vanguard artist, global futurist, business adviser, and entrepreneur as he seeks to discover the technological, economic, social, and ecological processes related to the passage of the "Industrial Society" to the "Information Society."

From 1985 to 1987, he directed a permanent multidisciplinary workshop on societal change at France’s Ministry of Research. Since then, he has worked as a consultant in communication, strategy, and management. He is a co-founder of "New Cap Invest," a venture capital firm dedicated to promoting highly innovative companies.

Saloff-Coste's international NGO, "Design Me a Planet," creates global scenarios and develops a systematic process for implementation beginning at the regional level and sustained through global level information sharing. In this creative talk, Saloff-Coste will compel the audience to "generate intelligent change together."
