Richard Buckminster Fuller, American architect, designer, inventor, philosopher, systems theorist, author.
The most distressing risks of XXI century known as climate change, global cyber wars and hostile AIs may bring more severe consequences than everything humanity has already faced. The COVID-19 pandemic is the first predicted risk, and it is still not the most prominent one.
The vast amount of feeding storms are manmade disasters and all of them are effects of humanity’s lifestyle choices. The future of civilization lies on our shoulders as we ourselves – the whole humankind - need to choose our road.
Arising system threats: putting humanity existence and well-being into question in XXI century.

The Foresight
The Centennial Foresight is mainly dedicated to fundamental processes of time horizon which demands strict scale understanding and embracing as well as essential public and expert dialogue.
We cannot underestimate global challenges; we need to understand their reality which defines our future. We need to accept that our denial is a suicide.

The main threat to our future is not neighborhood countries nor it is state alliances or any geopolitical adversary. The big bad danger lies inside the initial principles of civilization’s structure, the model of exploitation and extractive economy. These principles and this model gave us a push for our kind might and prosperity in XIX-XX centuries. This way of living worked well in the past, but it is not effective today and this is our main challenge. And what we need is to find a way out of these principles and change them to guarantee the best possible future for ourselves, our kids and our descendants for many centuries to come.
