The Millennium Project’s Global Work/Technology 2050 Scenarios were explored in Madrid and Bilbao, Spain and the possibility of creating a national workshop on beginning to develop Spain’s long-range strategies to address the issues raised in the scenarios. A national steering committee to create the workshop is being formed by key representatives of BBVA, Telefonica, FIDE Foundation, Centre for Development of Industrial Technology, the Ministry of Labor, Ministry of Interior, and the newly elected Basque Parliament. Ibon Zugasti, Chair of the Millennium Project Node in Spain and Jose Cordeiro, President of RIBER (Red Iberoamericana de Prospectiva) will be leading this effort.
The Basque government sponsored my trip and funded a mini workshop on the Basque strategic implications of the 2050 Global scenarios. In both Bilbao and Madrid I gave several briefings on the project and the work/tech scenarios (see Spain Work Tech 2050 Scenarios and Workshops-Sept2016.pdf). You can see the status of national workshops on slide 29. Let me know if you would like to help develop the national workshop in your country.
