The Humanity 2.0 Forum is a broad spectrum gathering of luminaries and stakeholders at the Vatican to explore a specific impediment to human progress and to discuss courses of action aimed at overcoming it.
It is the goal of a Forum to identify one specific venture that has high probability to fundamentally alter human life on earth and then to rally support for a cross sector collaborative venture.

The Themes

A Healthy Environment for Pregnancy

A presentation by leading medical and life science institutions will outline a groundbreaking new approach to pregnancy.
Following the presentation, plans for Square Roots’ first Lab will be unveiled as well as a call-to-commitment to invest in the future of humanity.


A Humanity 2.0 Forum 'call-to-commitment' indicates the desired joint-venture of the particular Forum. Rallying support for the venture is the objective of the Forum and the venture's early success is Humanity 2.0's objective for the year.



A Humanity 2.0 'exploratory panel' is intended to examine a particular impediment to human progress and explore potential solutions. The objective of an 'exploratory panel' is to determine the likelihood a single venture could be brought to bare to significantly address said impediment and whether future efforts of Humanity 2.0 are merited or not at this time.


The Future of the Internet

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations collaborating to use transparency to build a more trustworthy and trusted press. Led by award-winning journalist Sally Lehrman, it is hosted by Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics.
Search engines and social media platforms, which have become important news distributors, are participating as external partners (Google, Bing, Facebook, Twitter).

Human-centered Civilizations

Pope Francis in his TED talk in 2017 urged for a “revolution in tenderness". He reminded us that we are not islands unto ourselves, but rather a common family sharing a common home.
The mission is to encourage a culture of love where we recognize each others dignity and work selflessly to build a civilization of true opportunity. This ‘exploratory panel' will delve more deeply into Pope Francis' remarks and suggest courses of action aimed at realizing the Holy Father's vision.

Participate in the Forum

Participants in the Humanity 2.0 Forum are mission-aligned stakeholders gathered to address particular impediments to human flourishing.

The Forum provides an opportunity for stakeholders to be presented with high potential solutions to particular human challenges and then an invitation to unite in a cross-sector effort to address them. Anyone may request to attend a Forum, but due to practical considerations, only a limited number are invited.

Invest in Humanity 2.0

Humanity 2.0 affords a unique opportunity to mission-aligned investors to invest in a vehicle of human progress. Utilizing metrics, data, and broad spectrum consultation, Humanity 2.0 seeks only tangible and measurable impact. 

Few investment opportunities promise to deliver a better world to your children. At Humanity 2.0, this is not an idle promise, it is a creed we live by.
