The 2269 Pantheon

The 2269 Pantheon is a group of people that we consider to embody this project’s ideals regarding imagination, exploration and innovation. Some are well known, others less so. But all make a positive contribution to our future.

Our gift of a 2269 print – an invitation to the greatest party of all time on June 6th, 2269 – is designed to be passed from one generation to the next and is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to these inspiring people.

If you would like to nominate someone, please let us know.
