Greg Lindsay is a futurist, urbanist, author and journalist.
Lindsay is a senior fellow at NewCities, where he has explored the future of connected mobility and mixed-use development on behalf of Toyota and Brookfield Properties, respectively. He is also a non-resident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Foresight, Strategy, and Risks Initiative, where he studies the intersection of cities, technology, climate change, and national security.
In addition to his work with NewCities, Lindsay is also director of strategy for LA CoMotion — an annual mobility festival in the Arts District of Los Angeles — and a visiting scholar at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management. In these capacities, he has worked with Intel, Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Aspen Institute, and the Regional Plan Association to envision the future of autonomous vehicles.
Greg Lindsay is also Urbanist-in-Residence at BMW MINI’s URBAN-X — a startup accelerator aimed at solving the toughest urban challenges through entrepreneurship.
In all its permutations:
Not just whether workers will go back to the office — I’m more interested in how, exactly, our hybrid work future is going to shake out, and how we can push the future of work and organizations in general much, much further than simply working from home twice a week.
After two years apart, Americans have forgotten how to work together. This is evident in the ongoing tug-of-war over the office. This framing — are we better off alone or in-person? — has dominated debates about our post-pandemic destiny. But neither managers nor workers have stopped to ask what it means to be together, whom we should be together with, and how we can be together. If the overnight adoption of remote work proved many of us can work from virtually anywhere, with anyone, what’s stopping us from taking it a step further and working with, well, everyone? Because solving the challenges that lie ahead of us on the far side of the pandemic requires working together at a scale greater than any one government or company ever has. In this far-reaching new talk, Greg Lindsay explores new ways of being and working together in a world in which corporate silos have cracked open and frustrated employees have spilled out, desperate to reconnect. Drawing upon dozens of post-pandemic examples as well as his own web3 experiments in building a distributed autonomous organization, or DAO, he offers audiences a vision of what it means to be together — how, why, and with whom — very soon.
