Sustainable living is the global debate of the 21st century. It urgently concerns attitudes and behaviour, design and architecture, industry, cities and communities, business and finance, and much more. But living sustainably has become too abstract; now it’s time to freshen it up and make it personal and practical.

Beyond guilt, beyond greenwashing, Futureperfect explores what’s possible, through programs and experiences that inform, inspire, connect – and enable everyone’s creativity.

Futureperfect is a discussion, inspiration and engagement project around sustainable lifestyles founded by John Manoochehri in 2010.
FuturePerfect Festival is led by Futureperfect Organisation and its organisational Members including Resource Vision, Futerra, The Hub Stockholm, Ungdomar AB, and the Friends group.
