What We Owe the Future is a book by William MacAskill. The book makes the case for longtermism—defined as the view that positively affecting the long-run future is a key moral priority of our time—and explores what follows from that view.

What We Owe the Future is expected to be released on 16 August in the United States and on 1 September in the United Kingdom.
