A documentary about tomorrow’s world

2014 is still a newborn and a lot of things can change over the year, but how much can change in a century or in a century and a half? This BBC documentary worth watching explores future technologies, ideas that we now consider as science fiction but will be turned into science fact.

Moebio’s dictionary: the cross-concepts

“There are only two things wrong with education: 1) What we teach; 2) How we teach it.” Roger Schank

The world is facing huge challenges and they are growing daily in severity, scale, and complexity. If we are going to survive, we desperately need the next generation to be smarter, more adaptable, and better prepared than any that has gone before. Our only chance is to equip our young people with the skills and the attitudes to pursue this mission. The question is: Is that what our current education system does?

We have business schools, medicine schools, science schools… that offer framed professional knowledge and train people… to “old” jobs. However, only when we observe with new consciousness can we find different answers and fresh solutions to problems. Our education system should also train awareness of the global context in which these professionals will operate and give them the capabilities to do so.

Moebio has been conceived, from its very beginning, as a place where health, design, business and technology meet at a new dimension. A holistic training adapted to the current needs and scenario.

Even its’ name, Moebio, was coined based on this same idea. We were inspired by the Möbius strip, a two-dimensional sheet with only one surface discovered by the German mathematicians August Ferdinand Möbius and Johann Benedict Listing in 1858. The Möbius strip has been an object of fascination since its discovery and it has achieved a life of its own beyond mathematics in magic, science, engineering, literature, music, and art.

Moebio is the meeting point for people who want to change the game and it has its own dictionary with words that combine business, science, technology and health worlds. Our faculty has helped us to create and define these cross-concepts that we are now sharing with you. Watch the videos below to learn about crealeaderhsip, collinovation, multinomics and d·Health. What do you think about them? Do you have other cross-concepts in mind?
