Educating the Public
Most media organizations react to events as they occur, and rarely focus on big picture issues concerning the future of humanity.
As a result, the topics of technological advance and existential risk are esoteric and poorly understood, and do not enter into the global conversation. This is deeply problematic, since they affect the entire future of humanity. To quote Nick Bostrom, a prominent futurist researcher, “a moral case can be made that existential risk reduction is strictly more important than any other global public good.”
In order to collectively respond to these challenges, we need a concerted effort to engage the public and make these issues accessible and relatable.
