THE UNITED NATIONS TAKES ON THE FUTURE: THE MILLENNIUM PROJECT ASSESSED THE BEST STRATEGIES
UNSG 's report on UN reform Our Common Agenda includes five foresight elements. The Millennium Project released an international strategic assessment of these. If the five foresight elements in Our Common Agenda are implemented along the lines of The Millennium Project study, it could be the greatest advance for global futures or foresight in history.

HOW WE DEFEAT THE AGRICULTURAL GREAT RESET
Russell Brand interviews environmental activist and author, Vandana Shiva. Dr. Shiva explains how the mainstream media have distorted the Dutch Farmer protests, claiming that shutting down small farms utilizing chemical fertilizers is the solution to the environmental and climate crisis. But the global elite, using the rhetoric of a Great Reset, and the strategy of “divide and rule,” are actually carrying out a 21st Century colonial land grab, driving small farmers and ranchers off the land, promising that pesticides, GMOs, lab food, and big data will make us healthy, happy and prosperous.
MANY AMERICANS SAY THEY HAVE SHIFTED THEIR PRIORITIES AROUND HEALTH AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES DURING COVID19
The coronavirus outbreak has transformed many aspects of public life since 2020, including how Americans work, go to school and attend religious services. Respondents in our recent survey described – in their own words – how their priorities changed during the pandemic. Around a quarter of those who responded (26%) said keeping healthy became more important to them. Many respondents (21%) talked about their renewed appreciation for social activities, but 35% said socializing and going out had decreased in priority for them. PeW
DESLOCAMENTO GLOBAL ATINGE NOVO RECORDE E REFORÇA TENDÊNCIA DE CRESCIMENTO DA ÚLTIMA DÉCADA
Apesar de alguns sinais de progresso, a velocidade e a escala do deslocamento forçado estão além das soluções para pessoas refugiadas. Ao final de 2021, o número de pessoas deslocadas por guerras, violência, perseguições e abusos de direitos humanos chegou a 89,3 milhões (um crescimento de 8% em relação ao ano anterior e bem mais que o dobro verificado há 10 anos), de acordo com o relatório “Tendências Globais”, uma publicação estatística anual do ACNUR. Desde então, a invasão da Ucrânia pela Rússia – que causou a mais veloz e uma das maiores crises de deslocamento forçado de pessoas desde a Segunda Guerra Mundial – e outras emergências humanitárias, da África ao Afeganistão e além, elevaram este número para a marca dramática de 100 milhões.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS CREATING A NEW COLONIAL WORLD ORDER
This story is the introduction to MIT Technology Review’s series on AI colonialismo. Over the last few years, an increasing number of scholars have argued that the impact of AI is repeating the patterns of colonial history. European colonialism, they say, was characterized by the violent capture of land, extraction of resources, and exploitation of people—for example, through slavery—for the economic enrichment of the conquering country. While it would diminish the depth of past traumas to say the AI industry is repeating this violence today, it is now using other, more insidious means to enrich the wealthy and powerful at the great expense of the poor.
IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD INFLATION IS HIGH AND GETTING HIGHER
BY DREW DESILVER

Two years ago, with millions of people out of work and central bankers and politicians striving to lift the U.S. economy out of a pandemic-induced recession, inflation seemed like an afterthought. A year later, with unemployment falling and the inflation rate rising, many of those same policymakers insisted that the price hikes were “transitory” – a consequence of snarled supply chains, labor shortages and other issues that would right themselves sooner rather than later.
RETHINKING CRITICAL SOCIETAL SYSTEMS – Can a Common Global Agenda Help?
Futurists have always warned that, one day, each of our critical systems will stop being fit for purpose and that we have to think ahead about what comes next. What’s striking from our conversations with clients around the world today is how many of these systems seem to be running out of steam at roughly the same time – nationally and globally. In many parts of the world we can see what seem to be quite serious fault lines appearing in critical systems that form part of our societal infrastructure. At the same time there are lots of indicators that there is hope on the horizon.

WORK/TECHNOLOGY: 2050 Scenarios and Actions
Report on a three-year international study that produced three detailed scenarios, conducted 30 national workshops in 29 countries, identified hundreds of action distilled to 93 that were assessed by hundreds of futurists and related experts in over 50 countries. Income gaps are widening, the concentration of wealth is increasing, jobless economic growth seems the new norm, and return on investment in capital and technology is usually better than in labor. As labor costs go up and AI and robot costs go down, manufacturing and service unemployment rates are expected to increase. Three scenarios are: It’s Complicated—A Mixed Bag, Political/Economic Turmoil—Future Despair, If Humans Were Free—The Self-Actualization Economy. MP
CELEBRATE WORLD FUTURES DAY HOSTED BY THE MILLENNIUM PROJECT
Beginning March 1 in New Zealand at 12 noon NZ time, the open conversation on how to build a better future will move west each hour. Anyone can join in at 12 noon their time to explore with futurists and others possibilities for our common future. Each year, for the past eight years, global thought leaders have shared their views about future global issues, such as future consequences of COVID-19, governing artificial intelligence, inventing future concepts of work, building space elevators to orbital cities, reducing climate change, guaranteeing safe water and energy, fighting transnational organized crime, developing future forms of democracy, countering information warfare, incorporating global ethics in decisionmaking, enforcing safety standards for synthetic biology, and the future of humanity.

The three scenarios incorporated input from over 250 medical doctors, public health professionals, emergency relief staff, economists, and futurists in five US and international Real-Time Delphi studies (a unique interactive survey process). These studies assessed the possible best, worst, and most likely conditions by January, 2022. J. Gleen

As labor costs go up and AI and robot costs go down, manufacturing and service unemployment rates are expected to increase. So, what to do. results were used to create three draft scenarios to 2050: It’s Complicated—A Mixed Bag, Political/Economic Turmoil—Future Despair and If Humans Were Free—The Self-Actualization Economy. From ther were built the 93 possible actions. MP

UPDATE TO LIMITS TO GROWTH Comparing the World3 model with empirical data
In the 1972 bestseller Limits to Growth (LtG), the authors concluded that, if global society kept pursuing economic growth, it would experience a decline in food production, industrial output, and ultimately population, within this century. The LtG authors used a system dynamics model to study interactions between global variables, varying model assumptions to generate different scenarios. Previous empirical-data comparisons since then by Turner showed closest alignment with a scenario that ended in collapse. Gaya Herrington

STRATEGIC FORUM - PLANNING FOR TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE
The pandemic and other threats like climate change pose an existential challenge to organizations everywhere, and they have made it clear that the present global order is not sustainable. The World Economic Forum called for “A Great Reset” in all spheres of society. Leaders in business, government and other institutions need to plan for transformative change – NOW. The TechCast Project draws on its leading research to bring authoritative studies on the crucial issues of today to a broader audience. W. Halal, June 30 2021
CORRUPTION PERCEPTIONS INDEX (CPI) 2020
2020 proved to be one of the worst years in recent history, with the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effects. The health and economic impact on individuals and communities worldwide has been catastrophic. As the past tumultuous year has shown, COVID-19 is not just a health and economic crisis, but a corruption crisis as well, with countless lives lost due to the insidious effects of corruption undermining a fair.

The Millennium Project 2020 YEAR IN REVIEW
COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE TO SOLVE THE MEGACRISIS
In short, I think the world is heading toward some type of historic shift in consciousness, a collective epiphany, a code of global ethics, a spiritual revolution, a political paradigm shift or a new mindset. Without a consciousness based on global unity, cooperation and other essential beliefs, there seems little hope. And with a shift to global consciousness, it all seems possible.
