The Millennium Project

The Millennium Project is an independent international think tank with 40 "nodes" around the world that gathers and accesses information on futures studies that produces the annual State of the Future report since 1997 and the Futures Research Methodology series Versions 1-3.

The Project was formed by the Futures Group International, the Smithsonian Institution, the United Nations University, and the American Council for the UNU via a three year feasibility study in 1992 funded by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, United Nations Development Programme, and UNESCO. Since the beginning of operations in 1996, nearly 5,000 futurists, scholars, decision-makers, and business planners from over 50 countries have contributed with their views to the Millennium Project research.

The Project now has "Nodes" in 38 countries and 2 others are global/functional nodes: Cyber Node and the Arts/Media Node. Nodes are independent organizations (composed of both organizations and individuals from different institutional categories - government, corporations, NGOs, universities, individuals, and UN or international organizations - which acts like a transinstitution) which co-operate with each other and the Project to provide an international perspective on futures research.

Famous quotes containing the words project and/or millennium:

    The trenchant editorials plus the keen rivalry natural to extremely partisan papers made it necessary for the editors to be expert pugilists and duelists as well as journalists. An editor made no assertion that he could not defend with fists or firearms.
    —Federal Writers’ Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    At the end of one millennium and nine centuries of Christianity, it remains an unshakable assumption of the law in all Christian countries and of the moral judgment of Christians everywhere that if a man and a woman, entering a room together, close the door behind them, the man will come out sadder and the woman wiser.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
