Future Day

Wherever you are in the world, you are invited at 12:00 noon [March 1st] in your time zone to join this global conversation about the future.

On March 1st, International Futures Day, six international futurist organizations will come together to conduct a 24-hour conversation about the world’s potential futures, challenges, and opportunities. This online conversation will be moving across the world with people entering and leaving the conversation whenever they want. The six organizations will provide facilitators for each of the 24 timezones as possible. In addition to The Millennium Project, they are: the Association of Professional Futurists, Club of Amsterdam, Humanity+, World Future Society, and the World Futures Studies Federation. 

“This is an open, no-agenda discussion about the future, but in general people will be encouraged to share their ideas about how to build a better future,” notes Jerome Glenn.

Two years ago Humanity+ initiated Future Day as March 1st for their members – and anyone else - to host some activity locally to celebrate a positive future brought about by accelerating technology – the focus of their organization. This year, Jerome Glenn, CEO of The Millennium Project, decided to help make it a global online event and start a new tradition that could eventually help humanity think itself together for a more beautiful future.
