WHY: For four decades, The San Diego Foundation has grown a more vibrant region by supporting ideas, as well as the individuals who conceive them and institutions that propel them.

Future40 is a series of public events that continues this legacy by engaging leading thinkers to raise provocative questions, highlight new possibilities, and challenge our assumptions about the future of San Diego.

The Future40 series marks the 40th anniversary of The Foundation, and extends the conversation through 2015 to help us explore the possibilities for our region. Future40 engages a wide cross-section of San Diegans, including thought leaders, scholars, and champions of change, who will raise important questions, discuss changing constructs, and identify emerging opportunities — and through these exchanges, shape a more equitable future for all.
