State of the Future 2012

State of the Future 2012

The STATE OF THE FUTURE report is published annually by The Millennium Project. Millennium Project reports provide context for global thinking and potential for better understanding how humanity could work together to improve the human condition.

The 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 2,500 people since the beginning of the project selected by its 40 Nodes around the world. The work is distilled in its annual “State of the Future”, “Futures Research Methodology” series, and special studies.

In 2011 the c3 and Kate McCallum, Chair of the Arts and Media Node worked with The Millennium Project to create a RTD: Real Time Delphi survey and polled over 300 global arts and media professionals about the future of the arts and media.  The results of the survey was distilled down and summarized into Chapter 4 of the STATE OF THE FUTURE 2011 report.
