Do you believe that emerging technology will give society the ability to solve the greatest challenges facing humanity? What's the biggest priority: longevity therapies, sustainable energy, clean water, a restored environment, or space development?

The World Transhumanist Association is a global non-profit member organization dedicated to the ethical use of technology to expand human capacities. The WTA supports the development of and access to new technologies that enable everyone to enjoy better minds, better bodies and better lives. This philosophy would be negligent without considering a better environment and a better planet in which to live. How can we live better than well if we don't take action now to solve the greatest challenges facing our world?

Therefore, the theme of TransVision 2007 is: Transhumanity Saving Humanity: Inner Space to Outer Space, and will feature three full days of compelling dialogue with the greatest minds of today about creating the civilizations of tomorrow. TV07 brings extraordinary people from across the globe together with more than 30 distinguished speakers, entertainers and visionaries including: award-winning inventor, futurist, author Raymond Kurzweil; acclaimed longevity scientist, Aubrey de Grey; and Emmy award winning actor, William Shatner.

Here's just some of what we'll be discussing:

Day Two: Meta space: Transforming Humanity
