ExtroBritannia's July event: How to win friends and influence politicians.

Saturday the 28th of July, 2pm, at Conway Hall (Artists’ Room), in Holborn, London. Everyone welcome.

What would it mean if mainstream UK political parties absorbed Transhumanist ideas into their values and policy? What if dogmatic inhibition of Transhumanist developments could be transformed into a rational, national and international reach for technological salvation? Imagine what might be achieved in just one decade with Apollo Project-scale, collaborative, multi-national public funding and regulatory reform. Love it or loathe it, politics drives our national agenda, and Darren Reynolds wants to tell us how to get into the driver's seat.

Darren Reynolds is a local government councillor, approved Parliamentary candidate and party conference insider for a mainstream UK political party. He's also one of the original contributors to the Transhumanist Declaration and a sustaining member of the World Transhumanist Association.

We will be at the Penderel's Oak (see below for the address) from 12.30 for lunch and will move to Conway Hall at 2pm. We’ll be back at the Penderel’s post-event for drinks and discussion at approx. 5pm. Feel free to show up at any stage.

If it's your first time at an ExtroBritannia event, look out for a copy of Kurzweil's "The Age of Spiritual Machines" at our table. Here's a picture of the book's cover.
