Save The Humans @ The Hoxton Hotel

February 11th 2016

Smartphones, health-care robots, wearable computers and driver-less cars – they’re coming, or they’re already here. We are becoming increasingly intimate with the machines that constantly measure, monitor and control our lives. How does this affect our autonomy and our human spirit? And how can the growing global population – already above 7 billion – work together to create humane lives for us all? What’s at stake is the remains of human agency.

Next Thursday, February 11, the Hoxton Hotel in Amsterdam dedicates an evening to our newest publication: 'Save the Humans!' Speakers include philosopher Jos De Mul, filmmaker Floris Kaayk and initiator of the publication Mieke Gerritzen. Next Nature Network founder Koert van Mensvoort will lead the conversation.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
