The overall theme of the Conference is

HUMANKIND 2050: PEACE * DEVELOPMENT * ENVIRONMENT

In 1967 Robert Jungk, Johan Galtung and friends held the MANKIND 2000 Meeting in Oslo, Norway. One of the outcomes was the founding of the World Futures Studies Federation (WFSF) in Paris, 1973. WFSF is a UNESCO and UN ECOSOC Consultative Partner with members in 60 countries. www.wfsf.org

At the 21st WFSF conference in 2013 we decided to celebrate 50 years since Oslo 1967 with the theme: Humankind 2050
