The Millennium Project Ranked 6th Best Think Tank in the World for New Ideas and Paradigms
Global participatory futures research, State of the Future Index, Real-Time Delphi, Global Futures Intelligence System, Tele-Nations, and TransInstitutions are some of the innovative ideas and methodologies introduced by The Millennium Project.
(PRWEB) January 29, 2014
Some 2000 experts polled by the University of Pennsylvania rated think tanks throughout the world in various categories to produce the 2013 “Global Go To Think Tanks Index.” The millennium project was rated 6th in the Special Achievement Category IV for “Best New Idea or Paradigm Developed by a Think Tank.”
Most think tanks focus on a specific issue, country, or ideology. The Millennium Project connects futurists around the world to explore prospects for humanity as-a-whole. This should not be confused with the UN Millennium Project that produced scholarly papers to address the eight UN Millennium Development goals. Although born from a three-year feasibility study from 1992-1995 funded by the UN University, US EPA, UNDP, and UNESCO, it is an independent, international think tank with 50 Nodes (groups of institutions and individuals) around the world that connect global and local perspectives, producing new approaches to build a better future.
