Inspiring stories about the people and places building our future

Project details

Aiming to start a global conversation about the amazing innovations shaping our world, HOW WE GET TO NEXT is not a tech news site or an opinion blog. It's a site for stories that people want to share about the little-known innovations created by inspirational people. From the talking robot taking theater by storm, to the latest apps targeting the real issue of food wastage, we're discussing lesser-known stories from across the world.

The website complements HOW WE GOT TO NOW, a major six part series for PBS and BBC about the history of innovation, and its role in creating social change hosted by best-selling author Steven Johnson.  The site, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and The Lemelson Foundation, aims to inspire, generate conversation and create a community around the innovations shaping the future.
