Launch of the Global Futures Information System (GFIS)

January 2013

The Millennium Project launches its GFIS on the 16th of January. The system will enable you to keep track of global dynamics, obtain insight and inform decision making and future possibilities.

Subscribers will have access to current information, data and intelligence from futurists, scientists, thought leaders and experts around the world through an evolving system that is developed to grow synergies. The system provides detail for each of the 15 Global Challenges of the Millennium Project through a situation chart (current and desired status, relevant policies to address the gap), overview and detail section, digest (news articles and other information on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis), updates, scanning results, news feeds, Real-Time Delphi (RTD) surveys, discussion (groups, blogs), models (interactive computer models applied in futures work), and other resources for each Global Challenge.

View the webcast on 16th January, 12h30 to 13h30 East Coast Time USA. View the press release here or take a look at a flyer of the system here. Visit the Millennium Project website and subscribe to have access to the GFIS and its more than 10 000 searchable pages on topics such as the environment, the future economy, global scenarios and annotated bibliography of over 850 scenario sets.

Launch of the State of the Future Report 2012

What do we need to know to build a better future? Are we going to be around 50 years from now? What can we do to live as part of a planet and in harmony in the future instead of destroying it and what do we need to know to achieve that? The SA Node of the Millennium Project releases the 2012 State of the Future report – the annual “Report Card on the World.”

Pretoria, October 22, 2012 Whether we ask questions about our own future or that of humanity or are concerned with decisions that will affect the country or large groups of people, we live in a time of great uncertainty and the answers to such questions are not easily found.

“The world is improving better than most pessimists know, but future dangers are worse than most optimists indicate.” - The 2012 State of the Future Report
