The Futures Project is proud to announce its contribution to the UN75 initiative of the United Nations. To mark its 75th anniversary in 2020, the United Nations has launched the first major global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the futures we want, an initiative entirely in line with the Futures Project’s vision. Through these conversations, the UN aims to build a global vision of 2045, by connecting people, amplifying voices and inspiring action.
As UN75 Global Conversation contributor, The Futures Project aims to contribute to the initiative by bringing together the most diverse groups of people to talk about the future, develop on shared visions and identify next steps to reach them. The outcomes, views and ideas will shared with world leaders and senior UN officials. In particular, The Futures Project will be hosting intergenerational dialogues to inspire action and reflection about the future/s.
In March 2020, The Futures Project will launch its first major initiative in the context of its partnership with the UN75: the open global open call “Innovators for the Future”. The call will seek to identify innovation projects and initiatives that are making positive and substantial impacts on communities and their futures, thus contributing to the realization of the vision of the UN 2030 Agenda. The “Innovators for the Future” initiative aims to contribute to the UN75 dialogue by bringing together global reflection and action in this crucial area of positive impact. After their launch in 2020, the “Innovators for the Future” will evolve to become a flagship activity of The Futures Project.
We will share more information on the call for “innovators for the Future” and our other activities as UN75 Global Conversation contributor very shortly.
