Computing ideas for a better society

People using mobile devices

Technologists built yesterday, creatives are building today, let's all build tomorrow.

Sure, the past is great; it's interesting and we can learn from it. But to really celebrate 60 years of BCS, we want to look forward... we want to hear all the good ideas we know you have, collate them and publish them.

We will feature your ideas in a number of ways - from being included on these 60th anniversary pages as blogs through to an ebook of all the ideas, to be published in early 2018. A selection will also be published in a special coffee-table book looking at the past, present and future impacts of computing, and those ideas that could be taken further by relevant BCS campaigns, or utilised to better inform our products will be used so we can really showcase the efforts of our members to make technology genuinely good for society.

What do we want to see? It's your call, but it could be...

  • A utopian vision: push the boat out and dream big!
  • A practical suggestion: what annoys you right now, and what could we do about it?
  • A re-imagining: what do we take for granted that we could rip up and start again?

You can send your ideas - small or large - to us via any means you like: email, our Facebook page, Twitter or through this form
