TitleThe Millennium Project - Global Futures Studies & Research
CreatorThe Millennium Project; Smithsonian Institution; The Futures Group International; United Nations University (UNU)
DescriptionThe Millennium Project was founded in 1996 after a three-year feasibility study with the United Nations University, Smithsonian Institution, Futures Group International, and the American Council for the UNU. It is now an independent non-profit global participatory futures research 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 2500 people since the beginning of the project selected by its 40 Nodes around the world. Nodes identify participants, translate questionnaires and reports, and conduct interviews, special research, workshops, symposiums, and advanced training. The work is distilled in its annual "State of the Future", "Futures Research Methodology" series, and special studies. The most recent forecast is the "2010 State of the future". Some other recent ongoing activities include the "Latin America 2030 scenario study", "Egypt 2020 Real-Time Delphi" and the "UN world water scenarios".
