Flourishing Futures

In an increasingly technical and online world, the ability to hit a button and cause untold physical and societal damage has never been so easy. As countries jockey for position in global leadership through complex maneuvers of politics and diplomatic relations, there have been increasing movements in nuclear armament. Understanding the risks associated with nuclear armament and warfare, and the causal pathways that could lead to their use, is the current focus of our Flourishing Futures Cause.

We are also announcing an exciting new development — we are partnering with Rethink Priorities to launch the Nuclear Risk Forecasting Tournament! This will help inform policy makers, researchers, altruists, investors, and entrepreneurs on the risks and outcomes associated nuclear warfare and the likelihood of its occurrence in the future.
