WHAT IS ENVISION?
Founded by students
of Princeton University in 2016, Envision brings together current and future engineers, policy makers, scientists, philosophers, business leaders, and others who will lead the world in intellectual innovation.
Together, we explore
technological trends and their implications for our futures. We promote prudence in the development and use of technology across sectors and disciplines. Ultimately, we aim to pioneer a brighter future.
We empower current and future global leaders to pursue the prudent advancement of social and scientific policy, systems, and technologies, for a brighter future.
In its rich five-year history, Envision has aimed to fulfill its mission through many means. We've hosted annual conferences, seasonal trips, and on-campus initiatives to reach many worldwide. In addition, we have also established a podcast series and a digital newsletter where we hope to promote, understand, and explore various technologies and disciplines. Here's a quick overview over our legacy:
THE 2019 CONFERENCE
What does it mean to be human? Our 2019 Envision Conference brought together over 150 global and industry leaders to discuss how new technologies will change our social groupings, our psychology, our lives and livelihoods, and our social, political, and economic systems. We believe that careful consideration of these questions is central to maximizing the benefits of innovation.
