“In 100 years – starting now” is the title of this project, which is developed and will be facilitated by House of Futures during 2011-12. The project will explore and debate meaningful answers to questions such as:

  • How can we sustain, develop and enrich human existence given the limited resources available on planet Earth?
  • What does it take to co-create sustainable societal development in the long run?
  • And what are the possible, plausible and preferred futures?

We are asking these questions on four Copenhagen Seminars re-working sustainability and growth among a wide range of Danish and international stakeholders to make a unique contribution to the debate on how we can meet the needs of the present without compromising future generations.»

The seminars are part of a scenario process running the course of a year involving cross disciplinary experts and thinkers, who will rework and co-create visions of sustainability and growth. House of Futures uses futures studies methods in a 100 year scope to outline the most important drivers and uncertainties of transformations and frame preferred futures 2112.

A Core Group of high profile Danish experts will follow the four seminars and through an independent back casting-process the group will give their recommendations to the VELUX FOUNDATION on whether the foundation should support a center for environment and sustainability in Denmark.
