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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
