Jerome Glenn, CEO, The Millennium Project, Dennis Bushnell, Chief Scientist, NASA Langley Research Center, and Paul Werbos, Program Director, National Science Foundation, will explore global strategic prospects and strategies drawn from the 2013-14 State of the Future report and the online Global Futures Intelligence System.

This is the 17thState of the Future report produced by The Millennium Project – a global participatory think tank with over 50 Nodes and about 5,000 participants around the world. The Millennium Project is listed among the top ten  think tanks in the world for new idea/paradigm by the Go to Think Tank index of the Univesity of Pennsylvania and was selected by Computerworld as a laureate for its innovations in collective intelligence systems.

2013-14 State of the Future’s executive summary gives an unparalelled overview of our current situation, propects, and suggestions to build a better future, plus an annual World Report Card of where we are winning and losing, and the 2013 State of the Future Index. Chapter 1 on 15 Global Challenges provides a framework for understaning global change. Other chapters share international assessments of the causes of and solutions to the increasing problem of hidden hunger; vulnerable natural infrastructure in urban coastal zones; lone wolves and individuals making and deploying weapons of mass destruction; a presentation of the Global Futures Intelligence System, and some concluding thoughts.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss potential global trajectories and outlooks, and how the first global collaborative futures intelligence evolves and functions.

 

A light lunch will be served at noon.
