Several topics are usually covered at City Talks' ideas festivals around the world. Among these issues, are trends and predictions on communities, human behavior, and religion.

One could argue that each and everything that humans do is for one main reason: to secure their future as a species.

Humans travel the stars, probe the Earth, explore the ocean’s depths, and travel every inch of land, all in order to find better options for their species survival. 

 

But where are humans on that, really? 

 

What does the future hold in relation to how humans will evolve? 

 

While a lot of future trends enthusiasts believe that the human species is in constant evolution, and this is expected to continue in the centuries to come, they insist that humans will evolve through natural selection, breeding or genetic manipulation. In fact, scientists strongly believe that breeding and genetic manipulation are the most probable ways future humans will evolve.

 

What would happen to humans in case of an ineffectiveness of natural selection? 

 

Will this cause their deterioration? 

 

What if policies that allow migrations aren’t efficiently put in place so that the negative-growth population can be able to welcome people from other countries? 

 

It’s said that by the year 2050, a completely new type of human will evolve as a result of radical new scientific, technology, behavior, and natural selection.

 

As it’s always been, as far as we know, mankind has been undergoing a major 'evolutionary transition' and this isn’t stopping any time soon.

 

Futurists say that in less than four decades, humans will be able to live much longer have children later (really like in their old age) and rely a lot on artificial intelligence to do mundane tasks.

 

Life history theorists also believe that by 2040, Google will have a huge influence on our mobility in urban areas and policies that regulate our communities. 

 

Robots will be taking a lot of jobs in less than 30 years.

 

All in all, and more realistically, we may eventually see future generations of humans taking on a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on their host planet and the conditions that best support the survival of their species.
