The Buckminster Fuller Challenge invites today’s practitioners to answer his call “to make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.” What would Bucky do? Buckminster Fuller’s legacy is alive. His teachings restore our optimism and encourage us to strive for progress.

The Buckminster Fuller Challenge invites today’s practitioners to answer his call “to make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.” Past challenge winners John Todd, Ocean Arks International (2008) and Ryan Chin, MIT City Science Initiative (2009) join MA Commissioner of Agricultural Resources Greg Watson (Former E.D. New Alchemy Institute) to draw the through line from Fuller’s comprehensive anticipatory design science (CADS) to the transformative projects they lead today and the inspiring careers that work has sustained.

This session is developed in collaborations with the Buckminster Fuller Institute to explore Fuller’s unique perspective on energy and resources as practiced by these and other Challenge winners. It is a companion session to “Dematerialization Applied.”
