Expanding tourist Mecca living off its past with increasing unemployment aging society with crushing medical costs with imported labor maintaining the status quo? Or can its aging population create its own employment via web-based businesses from teaching to tour guides? Or will it rise to the occasion and reinvent itself? The answer could be found in how it is responding to the 15 Global Challenges facing humanity today Millennium Project Global Challenges Identification & Assessment :  Millennium Project Global Challenges Identification & Assessment 182 Developments 180 Developments 1997-98 1996-97 15 Issues with 131 Actions & 15 Opportunities with 213 Actions Distilled Into 1998-99 15 Challenges with 213 Actions 1999-2005 Global Challenges General description Regional views Actions Indicators State of the Future Index (SOFI) National SOFIs for American Countries 2000-2005 Millennium Project Nodes... are groups of individuals and institutions that connect global and local views in::  Millennium Project Nodes... are groups of individuals and institutions that connect global and local views in: Nodes identify participants, translate questionnaires and reports, and conduct interviews, special research, workshops, symposiums, and advanced training. 1. Sustainable Development for All:  1. Sustainable Development for All 2050 expect 3 billion more people; Economic growth accelerates; About 5-7 billion of the 9 billion will be urban; Serious urban systems ecology, nanotech, and new electric production and distributions system seem vital European knowledge of green technologies, policies, and ethics should be marketed to the world. 2. Sufficient clean water without conflict:  2. Sufficient clean water without conflict Water tables falling on all continents 40% of humanity on international watersheds 70% water for agriculture New knowledge needed for filters and membranes for large-scale water treatment agricultural efficiencies Drought-and salt-tolerant plants Desalinization Household sanitation Water storage massive tree planting 3. Population growth and resources be brought into balance :  3. Population growth and resources be brought into balance Poverty-Environmental Migration to Europe increases By 2100 Europe’s population could be half of that of 2000. (362 million down from 728 million) Old Age Percent doubles 2050 (30% up from 15%) Knowledge economy jobs for older people should a HUGH industry for Europe.

Global IT working for everyone:  6. Global IT working for everyone Internet is the self-organizing mechanism for the global brain and the emerging nervous system for conscious-technology by both design and self-organization China: 1 in cell phones, 2 in Internet users; gap is closing Knowledge economy Tele-education, Tele-nations Tele-government, Tele-volunteers, Tele-medicine, Tele-everything (if it isn’t tele - it will be tele-terminated) Meme epidemics (cultural implications) (seek markets not jobs) 7.Ethical market economies reducing the rich-poor gap:  7.Ethical market economies reducing the rich-poor gap Top 5% bottom 5% ratio 6-1 in 1980; now over 200-1 Internet is re-distributing the means of production Elderly Europeans create self-employment – Memes needed to change from employment model to self-employment 8.

The threat of new and reemerging diseases, and immune micro-organisms reduced Europe a leader in Pharmaceuticals – a growth industry. World’s fast growth AIDS in Eastern Europe Gene sequencing leading to specific new drugs is very fast today (SARS), but urban concentrations, travel, and terrorism it may still require an alternative approach – rapid, short-term boost of the immune system. 9. Capacity to decide improved:  9. Capacity to decide improved Democratization and interactive media increase the number of people involved in decisionmaking, and the acceleration of change increases uncertainty, which reduces our capacity to decide and set priorities.

Could Europe initiate a new a new global system? Implement Palermo Treaty with a new mechanism that upgrades check transfer software, prioritizes collaborative enforcement, and deputizes courts 13. Growing energy demand met safely and efficiently :  13. Growing energy demand met safely and efficiently Global Electricity demand will double, and maybe triple in the next 50 years; advances in nanotech and biotech will greatly improve efficiencies, but more is needed. A world energy organization to pool talent and money from business, government, and universities for high risk, high payoff R&D for large-scale systems such as Carbon Sequestration and Solar Power Satellites Slide29:  Shell Oil’s “Sustainable” Growth Scenario Carbon sequestration 14. S&T Breakthroughs accelerated to improve the human condition :  14. S&T Breakthroughs accelerated to improve the human condition S&T progresses too fast to regulate, yet its potential dangers are too big not to regulate on a global scale International Science & Technology Organization could begin as an information system 15.

Global Ethics and Global Decisions Global ethics are emerging via ISOs, UN Treaties, the Olympics, NGOs, and the media To be a counter weight to the US and China/India, Europe could lead the global ethics discussions: What is the ethical way to intervene in the affairs of a country that is significantly endangering its or other people?
