About the Series:
The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.
To follow the series, you can become a Long Now Member, download the Seminar app, watch the videos online or subscribe to our podcast. Members help to support this series and can access tickets to the talks, our live stream, and HD video of our full catalogue of Seminars.
SALT talk videos are made possible by Whole Earth Films together with a grant from Margaret & Will Hearst, and are a production of FORA.tv Studios in association with Sustainability Media.
