We’re all Future Makers. We’re all – one by one, little by little – building the world of the future. But some people are really, really good at it. They’re the pioneers we’re celebrating here in this special Time Out story. They’re the people whose visions for a future world we want to share with you because they’re brilliant and the world needs to hear what they’ve got to say.
To arrive at this celebration of 50 truly incredible Future Makers, we polled our editors and writers around the globe, across the 328 cities where Time Out exists. We spoke to our colleagues from Los Angeles to Melbourne via Paris. We also asked you to nominate your own suggestions, from global heroes to neighbourhood champions. They’re the pioneers and innovators we’re celebrating here: the people whose daring ideas and bold projects are helping to create the world we all want to see.
They are artists, activists, architects. They are filmmakers, mayors, business people. They are environmentalists, musicians, urban planners. These people may defy easy labels, but they all have incredible stories to tell. Meet the Future Makers: 50 amazing people changing our world.
