Carlos Largacha-Martinez

Carlos is a Humanist, futurologist, social entrepreneur and research professor.


Carlos loves quantum mechanics, although he is not sure that he understands it. He has been applying quantum conundrums to social life, humanism, diversity, development and management. The Quantic Humanism Initiative is his new ‘maloka’ (indigenous place for thinking and sharing).


Carlos was born in Colombia. He loves his country and he is trying to make a change. He loves its music, folklor, food, mountains and ‘calor humano’ (human warmth). Romanticism (Latinamerican version) and music/dance are his passions. So anything that happens or that he chose to happen in his life, he tries as much to fill it with energy, authenticity and joyfulness.
