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.
This is the 18th and best edition of the State of the Future produced by The Millennium Project with its 56 Nodes around the world and two regional networks (Europe and Latin America).
It clearly documents humanity’s present situation; its challenges and opportunities; potentials for the future; and actions and policies that could improve humanity’s outlook 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,” declares Jerome Glenn, lead author of the report and CEO of The Millennium Project — referring to issues like future impacts of artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, organized crime, asymmetric warfare, and how to produce enough food, water, and energy for another 2.3 billion people in just 35 years.
