Sector 10: Science & Technology

The Science & Technology Sector focuses on the unremitting advance of technology, which at times has exceeded the speed of Moore’s Law and now exceeds the breadth of humanity’s collective wisdom. This Sector also follows Futurists who professionally monitor developing technologies – such as nanotechnology and artificial intelligence – which one day may lead to a “Trans-Human Era” and possibly a “Post-Human Era.” In this regard, the Peace Pentagon HUB aligns with the work of MIT’s Future of Life Institute founded by Stephen Hawking and other concerned scientists.

Sep 11, 2017 to Sep 21, 2017 11 Days of Global Unity

When you get right down to it, as a human race we have what it takes to transform our world. We have the will, the intelligence, the resources, the heart and the leaders to address and heal the areas of our planet that need it most...

There are brilliant changemakers all over the globe making meaningful progress on critical issues — the environment, health, human rights, women’s issues, economic justice and peace, to name a few.

So what’s keeping us from achieving global transformation?

The fragmentation of changemakers around the world — like environmentalists, human rights advocates and healthcare workers, each working in their own silos.

We’re being called to work in collaboration and partnership like never before, to create the comprehensive changes we need... for a world that works for all.

The 11 Days of Global Unity summit, taking place September 11-21, bridges these gaps by connecting and promoting agents for change who are working within each of the identified “themes” — such as Environment, Health, Human Rights and Peace — to create a comprehensive blueprint for global transformation.

11 Days of Global Unity, produced by The Shift Network in partnership with We, The World, has become a worldwide platform, linking changemakers and their awareness and action campaigns to an inspiring global movement for the promotion of peace, justice, sustainability and transformation.

Total Solar Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, 2017, the Moon will pass in front of the Sun, casting its shadow across all of North America. This will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the contiguous United States in 38 years.

Although it will be seen in totality on a path between Charleston, SC and Nashville, TN, we will be able to see it in fairly good measure from Hampton and Va Beach, VA. See animation on the posted website for example of how it will look.
