The Long Now Foundation and Asia Society Northern California are partnering on a series of talks in Long Now's Seminars About Long-term Thinking series. With the Asia Pacific region being vital to long term thinking for the planet, and especially for those on the Pacific coast, we believe that there is a fruitful collaboration to explore for both of our memberships and the wider public.

The Asia Society's depth of knowledge about critical issues, key leaders and cultural perspectives coming out of Asia can inform the topics, people and conversations featured in the long-running Seminar series curated and hosted by Long Now's president Stewart Brand. Public access to the recorded talks broadens the reach of this in-depth collaboration.

Long Now's two lecture series, the Seminars and Conversations at The Interval, keep you connected to a whole world of long-term thinking.

You can follow the ideas by subscribing to the podcasts, sharing the highlights and connecting with Long Now on Social Media.

Long Now Members support the series and can reserve free tickets to the Seminars and tune into Long Now Live where we broadcast a live video stream of these talks.
