Lee Kang-chul, Chief of Staff for the President of South Korea, said

The Millennium Project’s work and its State of the Future reports are very important for Korea and the future of our planet.

Dr. Tetsuo Saito, Congressman, House of Representatives, Former Vice Minister of Science and Technology, Japan, said

The State of the Future report describes continuous analyses about widely spread global issues from the neutral view point. The study is very useful to understand the global trends of those issues. Many kinds of policy-makers can be getting inspiration through the report.

Luis Alberto Machado, Former Minister of Intelligence, Venezuela, said

The State of the Future compiles an incredible wealth of knowledge from around the planet, the kind of cumulative information that we need to create a real worldwide intelligence.

Philippe Busquin, Commissionner for Science & Technology, The European Commission, said

The State of the Future addresses in a coherent and forward-looking way many of the issues that impact on the evolution of our planet and the people living on it. At a time of accelerating globalization and an increasing need to organize our societies accordingly, it is essential for policy-makers at all levels to be able to rely on such solid analysis of global trends. The study is a good example of building collective intelligence based on a large network across the world.

Jerome C. Glenn cofounded and directs the Millennium Project, the leading global participatory think tank supported by international organizations, governments, corporations, and NGOs which produces the internationally recognized State of the Future reports.
