The UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean brought me to Santiago to address the global future and implications for the region sponsored in part by the South Korean government. Youngsook Park, Chair of The Millennium Project Korean Node also gave an excellent plenary address. Other participants in MP who spoke were Bill Halal, Barry Hughes, and Catarina Tully. Miguel Gutiérrez (Argentine Node) and Luis Lira (Chile Node Chair) also participated in the UN ECLAC conference. One article about this: http://www.estrategia.cl/detalle_noticia.php?cod=102730.
All the presentations will be available http://www.cepal.org/cgi-bin/getprod.asp?xml=/ilpes/noticias/paginas/6/53556/P53556.xml&base=/tpl/blanco.xsl
The Chilean Council of Prospective and Strategy has just been created by former Minister Sergio Bitar and Héctor Casanueva (former MP Chilean Node Chair who is now the Chilean Ambassador to the WTO) that is together with the MP Chilean Node now chaired by Luis Lira who also participated in these meetings. I suggested the that Council should produce an annual State of the Future Chile report, calculate and use a Chile State of the Future Index, and create the Chile Collective Intelligence System.

Next stop… Brussels to participate in the EC team to help create the innovation, research, and higher education scenarios for 2050.
All the best,
