Ibon Ibon Zugasti (Chairman of the Spanish Node of The Millennium Project http://www.proyectomilenio.org/web/guest;jsessionid=127DD04797751CC4E25C23BD882FC881 and CEO of Prospektiker) packed a wonderful set of events organized around the 25 anniversary Prospektiker the futures consultancy in San Sebastian and Bilbao. My trip was sponsored by REPSOL, the oil company. I went straight to REPSOL from the airport to observe a strategic planning workshop lead by Ibon and Prospektiker at REPSOL and then later that afternoon gave a talk on: the 15 Global Challenges; the Millennium Project energy scenarios (MP produced for the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation that we did several years ago, that are available on line at….); and the forthcoming Global Futures Collective Intelligence System (MP’s CIS) at www.themp.org).
Ibon and I then drove to Barcelona, where we gave a talk at ESADE the leading Business School in Barcelona http://www.esadealumni.net/ea/activities/forums_conferences/description_future_events?id_evento=255101 (seems only the first video is available; the second one for the full talk requires a password it seems), where I talked about the MP study on future elements of the next economic system (available in the 2012 State of the Future), the 15 Global Challenges, and MP’s CIS. We then drove to San Sebastian for the 25th Anniversary Celebration of Prospektiker – a delightful event with previous directors and clients of this futures consultancy. The next morning was a press conference focusing on the future of cooperatives and business 2030 study in the 2012 State of the Future report. http://www.tulankide.com/es/el-estudio-internacional-delphi-sobre-el-futuro-de-las-organizaciones-destaca-la-vigencia-del-cooperativismo.
Then we finished the trip back in Madrid with a presentation focusing on the global water situation at the Botin Foundation http://www.fundacionbotin.org/nuevo-coloquio-del-observatorio-del-agua-el-30-de-noviembre-de-2012_fundacion-botin-sala-de-prens-795804581318687.htm in Madrid.
All the best,
