About the World Future Society and WorldFuture 2014

The World Future Society is a nonprofit educational and scientific organization in Bethesda, Maryland, U.S., founded in 1966. The Society investigates how social, economic, and technological developments are shaping the future. Through its publications, conferences, and other activities, the Society helps individuals, organizations, and communities to understand change, build networks, and apply anticipatory thinking in their lives and work.

The future is not a destination; it is the result of actions that we take today, individually and together. If we can dare to envision the widest number of potential futures, then perhaps we can plan our actions more wisely today.

WorldFuture 2014: What If is designed to support this spirit of ambitious Imagineering, open thinking, and active exploration. “What If” questions range from the immediately practical to the infinitely imaginative, for they are our first step in exploring tomorrow’s possibilities.

Don’t miss this chance to engage with a community of future builders and world changers!
