The World Summit of the Committees of the Future brings together, for the first time, the committees responsible for dealing with future issues in different parliaments. The World Summit will be held in the Parliament of Finland on 12—13 October 2022 (Little Parliament building).
The goal of the World Summit is to introduce the future committees of different countries to each other and to identify topics that the committees want to discuss together. In their speeches, the committees of the various parliaments will highlight themes they consider important.
The World Summit of the Committees of the Future will be opened by Speaker of Parliament Matti Vanhanen and chaired by the chairperson of the Committee for the Future of the Finnish Parliament Joakim Strand. Jerome C. Glenn, CEO of The Millennium Project, will be keynote speaker for the event on the first morning, bringing valuable insights about high impact strategies to address the 15 global challenges facing humanity, the State of the Future Index, and a conscious technology in the post-information age, the need to get the initial conditions of the transition from ANI to AGI right, and the results of the recent study about the “5 UN foresight elements of our common agenda and suggestions to support the constitutions of Committees of the Future worldwide.
The world summits launched now are intended to form an international forum for parliamentary discussion on future policy. The committees that have a mandate in their own parliaments to deal with long-term issues would meet in the summits. The faster different crises arise in different parts of the world, the more important it is to create opportunities for a dialogue on the future. At the end of the Summit, the committees will issue a joint statement, with which they want to ensure that the just started international parliamentary dialogue on the future will continue.
