About Future Perfect

The world is in need of ideas for a better, more sustainable future, but ideas are not enough. FUTUREPERFECT, an international and multilingual internet platform, tells the stories of individuals, initiatives, organizations, and businesses that have moved from ideas to action.
 
In implementing new practices and reinvigorating old ones, these cooperatives, companies or communities are actively working towards a better future in the present. Their focus is not on economic growth but on sustainable prosperity. They move beyond searching for the best technology, instead asking for better ways of life.
 
Future Perfect is a joint venture of the German foundation Futur Zwei and the Goethe-Institut. All stories are published in English and German translations on the platform Future Perfect, whereas the original versions are to be found on the Goethe-Institut’s specific country sites.
