Global intelligence on the future of the world in the palm of your hand
Date of Event: Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Description: The Center for Future Studies NEF of the Catholic University of Sao Paulo (PUC-SP), Brazilian Node of the Milennium Project, will be presenting the SOF 2015-2016.
The Millennium Project connects futurists around the world to improve global foresight. It is now an independent non-profit global participatory think tank of futurists, scholars, business planners, and policy makers who work for international organizations, governments, corporations, NGOs, and universities. The Millennium Project manages a coherent and cumulative process that collects and assesses judgments from over 3,500 people since the beginning of the project, selected by its 56 nodes around the world. The work is distilled in the annual "State of the Future", "Futures Research Methodology" series, special studies, and integrated into its Global Futures Intelligence System.
The 2015-16 State of the Future is a compelling overview of humanity's present situation, challenges and opportunities, potentials for the future, and actions and policies that could improve humanity's outlook - in clear, precise, and readable text with unparalleled breadth and depth. "It is time for intolerance of irrelevant speeches and non-actions by leaders. The stakes are too high to tolerate business as usual," warns the Executive Summary of the report.
