The “Futures Studies” society has been the world’s leading future network for over 50 years. As an important future organization worldwide, it offers futur(olog)ists and those interested in the future a portal with all futures studies topics. People worldwide can exchange ideas about the many future possibilities – so-called futures. In this future association, everyone can learn the future mindset like a professional future expert. This future community is working on the most important innovations to support shape a peaceful and safe planet for tomorrow. The aim, vision and mission of all future projects is to help co-create a new world that will lead us to a humane civilization 2.0.


Futures Studies (FUTI) is the largest and most important futures studies organization and community on planet earth. Here you will experience the future alive, actively and truly. We’re   informing and communicating for over 100 years in the long term as a unique future association.  As a future network, we ask experts from all directions, scientists, researchers, artists, managers to politicians what the future holds for us. What are the probable, desirable to feasible futures and prospects? In the past we have drawn attention to the dangers and risks of the environment, climate to global economy. In the present today we show the opportunities and solutions after Corona. And in the future, too, we will be the point of contact for helping to shape and co-create our future. We are on the threshold of the Space Age and in the middle of the Anthropocene of a new Human History. And we will get even more questions about our future, where we came from and where we will go. Be part of it and let us work together to improve the world sustainably, to co-create a future for everyone and to celebrate the next higher level of civilization. We are the future!
