Saphia Richou, Chair of the French Node organized a series of meetings highlighted by the presentation of the Global Futures Intelligence System at Magellis Consultants (who had produced the French version of the 2010 State of the Future). One participant at this Paris launch said: “This is a fabulous tool to simplify the complexity; you don’t have to go all over the Internet to understand something; GFIS gets it all together.”
Michel Godet also attended the event saying we will work with MP on updating his methods in the Global Futures Methodology section under “Research” in GFIS. Saphia and I had dinner with Hughes de Jouvenel of Futuribles and his son – third generation futurist – saying they will like to help expand the French Node and collaborate more closely with The Millennium Project.
The day and a half visit ended with a lunch with Riel Miller, head of the Foresight Program at UNESCO and member of the MP Planning Committee who repeated that he welcomes joint projects from MP and any of its Nodes around the world.
Next stop: Washington, D.C. to finish work on the 2013-2014 State of the Future report.
All the best,
Jerome C. Glenn, CEO
