We study emerging technology


Envisioning is an independent technology research foundation based in Brazil and nourished by the world. 

We have a mission: to raise understanding about the implications of accelerating change.

All our work is crowdsourced, online and always free to share



Founded in 2011 by Michell Zappa, Envisioning is a radically new type of organization designed for an accelerating future. Incorporated as a foundation and fundamentally ownerless, we are big believers in decentralized, global and interoperable teams.

We believe in substantially improving the level of understanding about the nature of technology in, for and with society. We believe it is possible to gently guide the direction of progress to tip the scales in our favor. Technology is a mystery constantly unfolding before us, but one we believe begs explanation.


Our worldwide forward-thinking network of collaborators are at the core of our operations. A worldwide group of academics, designers, hackers, coders and educators collaborate to build an institution dedicated to the study of technology.
