The 5 Start Movement, a new political party in Italy (currently with the plurality of public support), brought me to Milan to address their conference. In addition to introducing the some of the content of the State of the Future 19.1, I suggested they consider creating: the Italian State of the Future Index; a graphic for integrated Italian strategy similar to the integrated global strategy in the concluding chapter of SOF 19.1; alternative cash flow projections for Italy’s universal basic income; increasing intelligence as an objective of education; an transInstitutions as new corporate category along with for profit and non-profit corporations. Parts or all of the online video feed was seen be over 63,000 people (not that many people saw my talk since I come on 1 hour and 52 seconds into the recording): https://www.facebook.com/LuigiDiMaio/videos/1552964644740076/. Former Millennium Project Intern, Niccolò Invidia is a member of the 5 Star Movement and is expected to win a seat in the Italian Parliament in March 2018 election.
Mara Di Berardo, Co-Chair of the Italian Node of The Millennium Project, initiated two other talks. With the Milan Singularity University Chapter, I suggested they figure out how they can promote anticipation of technological change without making the mistakes of the futurism movement founded in Milan over a hundred years ago. Also suggested they create the Milano SOFI, which would be the first city SOFI. With the Business Integration Partners (annual celebration with their clients), Mara and I spoke about the issues of work and artificial intelligence.
Now en route back to Washington to work and the second round of the RTD for the Environmental Law Institute and Scientific and Technological Advisory Panel to the Global Environmental Facility… so, be thinking of whom in your country are environmental experts to rate the future environmental pollutants that you should invite to the RTD.
