The Long Now Foundation

Our mission at The Long Now Foundation is to foster long-term thinking and responsibility. Recognizing that many problems of global magnitude can be traced back to a lack of long-term perspective, we offer a counterpoint to today’s pervasive “faster and cheaper” mindset. Through a variety of creative programs that bring arts and culture into dialogue with science and technology, we try to show that the theme of “slower and better” is an especially effective guide to help us generate ideas and insights that will benefit society within the framework of the next 10,000 years.

By encouraging thought and conversation about what might be in store for us in the next century, the next millennium, and the next geological era, The Long Now Foundation ultimately tries to expand our collective sense of the present moment: rather than focus only on the immediate “here and now,” we encourage people to become aware of the Big Here and the Long Now.
