Quaker Institute for the Future (QIF) has begun sharing Zoom recordings of the five-day Summer Research Seminar held online in August 2021. These are part of the QIF YouTube channel which is now available on the updated website. The website now also includes updates on QIF activities through Clerk’s Posts offered seasonally. The 2022 Summer Research Seminar is planned to be held online in the second week of August. It will extend a program of release-time stipends to support the participation of Young Friends. This program was a successful experiment in 2021 and is also being extended to support collaborative workshops in the upcoming May retreat of the Atlantic Friends Gathering in Eastern Canada. The Circle of Discernment book on artificial intelligence is expected to be published by early summer. Progress continues in other Circles of Discernment on bridging polarities, agriculture, and decolonization.
