The World Futures Studies Federation actually started in 1968 as an idea. There was a meeting in Oslo, which was sponsored and initiated by Johan Galtung, Robert Jungk, and James Wellesley-Wesley, the main soul of the meeting. In this meeting, many people from different parts of the world participated, among them John and Magda McHale from USA, Hidetoshi Kato from Japan, Igor Bestuzhev-Lada from—at the time—USSR, Andrzej Sicinski from Poland, and many others. The meeting was called ‘Mankind 2000’ and a book with the same title was issued [3]. The idea of getting a group of people from different parts of the world to think about the future and to start a dialogue between different visions of the future was the aim of that meeting. It is important to note the date, as it was the year when many things started, including the Club of Rome that was founded in the same year.

Great to see the godfather of Molecular Manufacturing back in business! Definitely one of my first encounters with radical future studies (back in the late 80s)
