Vision, integration of knowledge and mind shift
The purpose of Seminar 1, “Mind the long run, baby!” (held 8-9 June 2011) was to set the tone for the project, to create a frame of mind where taking a 100 years’ perspective not only becomes urgent and natural, but also opens up channels for exploration, discovery and imagination.

This article sums up the contributions made by participants at seminar 1 held 8-9 June 2011 in Copenhagen, which form the foundation for the continuing development of preferred futures scenarios for sustainable societies 2112.

Each of their individual mission were forming a floating ensemble of futures.
