The Millennium Project is a global foresight initiative launched by the American Council for the United Nations University in 1996 that helps decision-makers prepare for the future by analyzing emerging opportunities and challenges facing humanity. Through expert workshops, surveys, and trend analysis, the project produces an an-nual report and recommendations for action. It also engages in capacity building, knowledge sharing, and global networking through a diverse network of stakehold-ers. Ultimately, the project aims to promote a more integrated and proactive approach to global decision-making and governance, and to raise awareness of the importance of long-term thinking and foresight.

Magdalena Soetebeer and Lucas Buchauer from Schaltzeit GmbH will also participate in the event and co-facilitate the Hour at noon UTC +1 (12:00 in Berlin) together with colleagues from France, Italy, Netherlands and Germany. During the event different topics are discussed. The focus is on the “15 global challengdes for humanity” defined by the Millennium Project including sustainable development, water scarcity, population growth, health, education, governance, security, energy, science/tech, ethics, women's rights, organized crime, media, and future strategies.
Speakers and participants are also encouraged to address specific topics. Following topics were discussed during 24-hour round-the-world conversations in the past:
We are very excited about the topics and discussions this year and we are very hyped for the World Futures Day 2023!
