What if we were to construct a new up-to-date system that considers the needs of all? Aaron Hilton, the driving force behind this project, Mick Wiedermann, and Andreas an expert in artificial intelligence and systems management work have come together to create a system that can minimise harm and maximise abundance.

Speaker: Natalie Lawler – Mars One Candidate
With soaring imagination and refusal to accept limitations, since the dawn of the humans species, we have developed the languages of mathematics and science, became skilled technologists and eventually flung ourselves and our machines off the planet and into outer space. And why? An innate desire to explore, to secure a future and to seek the answers to questions that have had countless generations before us vexed in wonder. – Carolyn Porco
Natalie Lawler, one of the last hundred remaining Mars One candidates from a pool of over 200 000, will share her brave mission to leave the pale blue dot forever – in the pursuit of knowledge and adventure… and to provide a shining example of how a Resource-Based Economy is not the best way, but the ONLY way to live sustainably on a planet with extremely finite resources.
