HUMANITY IS AT A CROSSROADS.
THE EXPLOSION OF TECHNOLOGY AND ITS EXPONENTIAL ADVANCEMENTS ARE RESHAPING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN. AS TECHNOLOGY CONTINUES TO EXPAND, ITS INCREDIBLE IMPRINT ON OUR LIVES CONTINUES TO DEEPEN.
Along with the benefits and victories provided by new technologies come consequences that are alarmingly detrimental to society and to our planet.
Consequences that have been willfully ignored and conveniently ignored in favor of profits and power. Consequences that should concern all of us—and inspire us to take action.
A new conversation is brewing. An urgent, paradigm-shifting conversation.
How has technology shifted the course of civilization? UCOT was created to bring this conversation to the forefront of society and to spark bold action toward solutions.
UCOT is a global community of leaders, entrepreneurs, and concerned citizens working toward the long-term sustainability of humanity and the planet.
