USA: The Millennium Project Releases New Report: State of the Future

The 19th State of the Future report is an overview of the current situation and prospects for the future of the world – a report card for humanity. “We are winning more than we are losing,” writes Jerome Glenn, CEO of The Millennium Project and lead author, “but where we are losing is very serious; we have the resources to address these challenges, but not the decisionmaking yet.”

The 2017 State of the Future Index, contained in this report, shows worldwide progress over the past 20 years and continued progress over the next ten years in education, poverty reduction, infant mortality, water access, health, life extension, internet, and women in parliaments, but regression or stagnation in press freedom, internal conflicts, organized crime, employment, corruption, information warfare, and global warming.

The Millennium Project is an independent nonprofit global participatory futures research think tank of futurists, scholars, business planners, and policy makers who work for international organizations, governments, corporations, non-governmental organizations, and universities. It has 63 Nodes (groups of institutions and individuals) around the world that identify long-range challenges and strategies, and initiate foresight studies, workshops, symposiums, and advanced training. Over 4,500 experts have participated in The Millennium Project’s research since its inception in 1996. The Project’s mission is to improve thinking about the future and make those insights available through a variety of media for feedback to accumulate wisdom about the future for better decisions today. It produces the annual "State of the Future" reports, the "Futures Research Methodology" series, the online Global Futures Intelligence System (GFIS), and special studies, advanced training, and workshops. The Millennium Project was selected among the top think tanks in the world for new ideas and paradigms and for best quality assurance and integrity policies and procedures by the University of Pennsylvania’s GoTo Think Tank Index, and was named Computerworld Honors Laureate for its contributions to collective intelligence systems.

This global assessment of our future includes an executive summary and chapters on 15 Global Challenges; the 2017 State of the Future Index; future terrorism and new deterrence technologies and strategies; Future Work/Technology 2050 Global Scenarios with 100 actions to improve our prospects, and ending with a chapter of key conclusions.
